Re: Is my bird grieving?

The vast majority of mid to large Parrots are Socially Bonded to their group and a loss of a member is felt by the group (family). So yes, they grieve.

It will be a time in which you will need to be in tune with her needs. Sometimes cuddly and other times more with just herself. Take the time to share with her and let her know that you miss the sister as much as she does.

Tour the home often with her, as if you both are looking for her. It will help her define that sis is not around.

Hope that this helps...

And no, do not go out and get another, both of you need time to adjust.

In each Morning's early light; there is a promise, an Amazon makes!
