This innovative DVD that is destined to change the way caretakers view
their captive birds. Based on the model of the natural foraging instinct of all
animals, Dr. Scott Echols introduces the concept of including a foraging tree in
a bird's enclosure for environmental enrichment. The 30-minute video describes
how a foraging tree can potentially reduce the incidence of unwanted behaviors
in captive birds. Also included are step-by-step directions on how to use a
foraging tree as well as safe foraging toys for birds.
Topics included in the DVD include..... • Understand the natural foraging instinct of all animals • Prevent unwanted behaviors, such as feather destruction and repetitive functionless activity • Build a foraging tree for captive birds • Create foraging toys — from basic to advanced — to keep birds occupied and happy
