Foraging 101

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.
