In liberty parrots do not know any ranking in their social group! Equality for all!

Therefore it lies in their character that they do not submit or obey. It is impossible to force them to accomplish any task because they only act if they want. Everything depends on their own will! An abused and shy parrot won’t show anything difficult by order.

For this reason there is an important difference between Mark Steiger’s parrot show, in which the parrots bring unusual achievements with joy, and some other animal shows in which the animals are forced to act against their own will!

Since Marks Steiger’s parrots perform their difficult intelligence tests and feats without any stress in front of public, they supply the proof that they do not suffer. They are luckier than birds that are only kept in cages! Regular training is favourable for an animal, which has been proven in many zoos.

Animal shows are to be forbidden, in which animals are degraded to objects (e.g. some magicians) or only work of fear of the trainer (e.g. bear that must drive a motorcycle). These animals hardly find pleasures in their activity. There are slaves! Mark Steiger’s parrots are artists!

Usually it is not the show, which is hard to stand for the animal, but the transportation in close cages from appearance to appearance. Mark Steiger presents his parrots almost exclusively between Cannes and Monte Carlo (less than 50 km of journey). They regain each day their used environment.

Saint Zacharie / An educational show to learn more about birds


Mark Steiger’s parrots challenge the audience.

Who speaks about intelligent animals, usually quotes monkeys, dolphins or dogs. However, there are other species which must not prove their cognitive abilities any more: the parrots! And particularly not those of Mark Steiger who presents an instructive program on the Festivalis stage. With parrots which he loves and which he has taught a number of tricks and tests to prove their intelligence.


An sensitive animal difficult to keep

Extensive chapters about patience, work and loving affection could be written about Mark and his 6 magnificent parrot species. " Approximately 35 years ago I have seen a circus act with an African gray parrot. This live demonstration had convinced me more than all legends about speech talented and intelligent parrots. "explains Mark Steiger. " Today I try to persuade the spectators about the true capacities of my birds with my performances. "
Macaws and cockatoos have shown a choice of their skill during their performance. For example, we note the ability of the macaws to arrange correctly 8 forms of a puzzle, to correct the wrong positioning of 12 colored game stones or even, and this is still more astonishing to recognize numbers up to six. Mark is convinced of the fact that a parrot neither can count nor calculate, but recognizes the amount with an estimate. " I do not pretend that those birds could not learn to count”, he acknowledges, " but before the communication problem would have to be solved between parrot and human ". In contrast to the gentle character that parrots obviously show, they can also be very aggressive. At each show the parrot trainer fights with clear arguments against parrot keeping: " a parrot can bite off a man's finger " he warns, " one must pay attention ". Parrots, often noisy and psychologically fragile, require a large space, an almost constant presence and a daily maintenance. Mark Steiger’s educational parrot show makes understand to the audience that a parrot does not correspond to the usual picture of a small funny clown, but is a highly sensitive animal.
After their show Mark’s parrots again spend quiet days in Cannes surrounded by palm trees in the garden ….
