Foraging is an enrichment technique that combines many of the elements Robin discussed, including dietary tactile and visual. It replaces an important activity generally lost in captivity. In the wild, a bird will spend 80 percent of its time traveling to seek food. So if all we do is give our birds food in a bowl, it’s no fun! Foraging works to get them to do something. It is time-consuming and it reduces boredom. It also serves to redirect unwanted behaviors to positive and non-destructive ones.
