In case you missed it, here are the slides for the Clicker Training for Birds workshop presented at Phoenix Landing in September.

This class focused on the principles of operant conditioning and, specifically, how it applies to our interactions with our birds — and how to use those principles in conjunction with a clicker to mark behavior.

In addition to explaining how clicker training works, ideas for getting started, and strategies for overcoming training challenges, the class included interactive learning with hands-on exercises designed to let participants work on clicker timing and shaping behaviors.

Below are the slides from the workshop.

Clicker training is a fun way to interact with your bird, but it’s also a useful tool for addressing behavioral issues.
