Biting Bird

A biting bird may be showing frustration or demonstrating a lack of socialization, or may be trying to communicate that he has been put in a situation in which he feels vulnerable. Understanding how to communicate with your bird and reduce his frustration can help to minimize situations in which he is biting. Biting behavior should never be considered acceptable, and proper training can eliminate this problem.

It is important to differentiate biting from other behaviors such as nipping lightly to get attention or accidentally biting while trying to get food. Birds don’t have hands, and even talking birds can’t verbalize specific emotions, so they use their beaks to do their talking for them. If they are upset or frightened, they may nip. If the nipping behavior escalates to painful biting, or draws blood, it is definitely important to train the bird not to bite.
