Generally, each pet bird is distinct in its own way, in terms of characterizes, traits, and personality. Birds make fascinating friends if you are dedicated to caring for them. Choosing a name for a new pet bird is equally as taxing as choosing a name for a child. Birds are highly intelligent creatures, which demand a lot of attention. Therefore, constant interaction is necessary; this shows the need to give your bird a name that relates to it on a personal level.  You do not have to name your pet immediately you get it. You can even decide to name it after it warms up to you.
