This week’s bonus-length episode marks the culmination of our first season of the Bird Show, and we chose a topic worthy of this special occasion: Bird Psyches.  We’ve seen throughout the Bird Show how adept avian beings are at just about everything.  Today we dive beneath the surface to discover the psychological world of Birds.  Dr. Gay Bradshaw joins the flock for a fascinating conversation covering everything from trauma recovery to her lifelong journey with Panama, the Yellow-naped Amazon Parrot. If you enjoy Dr. Crow’s Bird Show, please rate, review, and subscribe on YouTube or wherever you listen to podcasts.  And if you know any fellow Bird nerds who you think will enjoy the show, please send them our flockin’ way.   Special Guest:  Dr. Gay Bradshaw, Founder & Director of The Kerulos Center for Nonviolence   Flocking News article — Early Experiences Determine how Birds Build their First Nest Article on Brain Structure — Bird Brain?
