How Well Does a Parrot Hear?Hearing is well developed in all birds. Your bird uses his ears for hearing and balance just as you do.
Your bird's ears are hidden though. The ears are just little openings covered with tiny contour feathers. If you want to find your bird's ears, check the area just behind and below his eyes. The feathers in that area should look just a little different. If you part the feathers gently there you will see the small opening that begins your bird's ear canal.
Birds distinguish between sounds much faster than human do and this often makes us think they hear much better than us. Their ability to determine where sound is coming from is similar to ours also.
Please note that most bird toys are non-returnable items for health reasons, so if you have questions about a toy, or need help selecting one for your feathered friend, please feel free to e-mail us or give us a call at our bird store.
The simple truth is we love parrots.
