You know how much your bird loves water. In the
wild, parrots and other birds bathe by rubbing
their heads on wet leaves in the canopies of
the rainforest, plunging in puddles, and even
standing under small waterfalls.
In their natural habitats, tropical birds even bathe in the early
morning hours when it can be as cold as it is in North America
(especially considering that as pets they live indoors). However,
many bird parents are still reluctant to bathe their feathered pets in
the winter, fearing that they may cause their bird a chill. If you don't
let your bird get wet on a regular basis, he'll miss a pleasurable
experience. In addition, because of indoor heating, skin and
feathers can dry out in winter more than in warmer weather. As you
can see, regular bathing or misting is even more essential in winter.
