Foraging for food is a big part of a wild bird’s day. Birdseed doesn’t come in cups in the wild. Instead, ground-feeders like cockatiels and parakeets have to find fields of wild grasses and wait until they go to seed in order to feast on them. Nuts aren’t given as a regular treat in the wild, either. Parrots like Amazons, macaws, and conures have to wait for trees to bloom and fruit before they can relish their favorite snack.
Your bird instinctively knows that he should forage for food, but the abundance of freely given bird food doesn’t allow the behavior, which leaves some birds confused and frustrated, and many others unhealthy and overweight. Until now. Lafeber has developed several non-GMO bird foods that are perfect for encouraging foraging behavior, including Nutri-Berries, Pellet Berries, Fruit Delight and Popcorn Nutri-Berrie Treats.
