What exactly is foraging?
Wild parrots occupy themselves for hours scratching, digging, chewing and pulling away vines, grasses, leaves and earthy rainforest debris just to get at their favorite bird food. The activity of trying to figure out where the bird food is and how to get the bird food is an instinctive need for captive or caged pet birds, too. Traditionally, we've thought we were meeting birds thrive on working their bodies to get at a few bites of food. Most caged birds don't have to move very far from the perch or stretch their minds at all to get their food. Bored birds make for uncompatible birds.
