Although pet birds always need a lot of time and attention they come with the great advantage that they should not be taken for a walk in the morning, as dogs. They can be kept in their bird cages and if they are fed properly, they will be very happy. But there are, however, some species of captive parrots that can become very noisy, if they are not given enough attention. They are very emotionally tied to their owner, and if they change home, they will become even worse.
It is important to know that usually, the bigger the bird is, the greater the effort to look after it is. Large birds are exceptional companions but, sometimes, they are noisier, dirtier and more demanding than their smaller sisters. So if you want to buy the first bird and you do not know exactly what species suit you best, it is better to start with a small one.
When it comes to food, it may be noticed that it depends on the type of pet birds. For example, parrots can be fed with fruits, vegetables and grains. Usually, parrots are pretty picky eaters. They never eat something they do not like. Therefore, malnutrition is a common problem among these birds. But the caffeine, the mushrooms and even the chocolate can be harmful to these little birds.
The owl feeds on field mice, crabs, frogs, small bats and a large list of insects. It is a very interesting pet bird but it needs a large cage because it can grow up to 60 centimeters. The canaries are very suitable for those who want to buy the first bird as a pet. Despite other birds, most canaries are quite shy and if they are kept in a house with noisy little children, they can get scared. But they are easy to feed. They need animal proteins, vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables.
It is also important to notice that a lot of pet birds can be found in large cities as Dubai and the reason for this fact is very simple: usually people in these cities feel lonely and they need a loyal companion. But, as Dubai is a very busy noisy city, most of the times, people prefer the birds as pets.
