Importance of Body Language

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, June 4, 2019


With any enrichment opportunity, it is important to watch your bird’s body language to ensure that the experience is positive and desired. In the first video, the Amazon parrot is showing very subtle signs that he is not interested in the shower—stepping away from the bottle and leaning back on the perch. In the second video, Kiwi (another Amazon parrot) starts to vocalize, occasionally leans into the spray, and spreads out her wings! #AAVEnrichmentTip
