Black Headed Caiques parrots are brilliant and enjoy learning and showing off their tricks. They are, however, very strong-willed and will need a firm hand in training and any interaction. If you’re not persistent and firm with your handling of a Black Cap, they can become aggressive towards people. They love to play finders keepers. If you have different things missing, you should check your companion’s cage. If they have it, they will not just hand it over because anything they find or hide; they consider them their toys.
Black Cap Caiques live 25 to 40 years, and many are living longer due to healthier diets and lifestyles. Caiques are not for first-time bird owners, and you should have experience with handling birds. Thought and consideration should go into the purchasing of a companion bird because these are lifetime companions
