Treasure Hunt: Keep your bird's active mind occupied with foraging
Interacting with your bird is every bit as important as providing an interesting environment. The secret to keeping your bird happy is the frequency of attention, not the duration. A few minutes of attention several times daily works wonders to relieve stress. Mental growth comes from engaging in a variety of life experiences. Experiment to discover the types of toys your bird finds the most interesting and challenging. Keep in mind that no matter which toys you provide, and regardless of how intriguing, your bird will eventually tire of them. It is important not to place too many toys in the cage at once, which may over-stimulate your bird and cause stress. It's better to choose a select few and to rotate them every few days.
Foraging is the act of searching for and finding food. In the wild, foraging for food is part of a bird's daily routine and occupies a large portion of his time - in many cases over half of his waking hours. If foraging activity is not encouraged in your pet bird, he has many more hours per day with nothing to fill his time. This lack of foraging activity can affect a bird's physical and emotional well-being, causing boredom, behavioral problems (such as feather picking), and a lack of natural curiosity.
