Default Basic bird info

At school I am part of the pre-vet club. We are thinking about volunteering at a bird rescue center in the area and I'd like to go, I don't have any experience with birds at all, it's one of the only "genre" of animal I have zero experience with and I'd like to change that. I am a little concerned since I know birds, especially large birds, can be aggressive. I was wondering what you all thought someone should know before working with birds. I'm thinking along the lines of etiquette (how does one greet a bird properly? How do you handle it? Are they territorial and how do you deal with that when you need to clean their cage? Are their any human behaviors they tend to hate (like eye contact)?) and body language (how does a bird act when happy, scared, angry, etc?). Also some basic information on care, behavior, and some of the more common (that you'd see in rescue) species would be great too.

I'm hoping to go check the place out on Sunday, we'll see how it goes!

I believe this is the place we are going:

Thank you ~Dixie's Mom~ for my awesome siggy!
