Bathing Bird Body Language

Hi there,

Are these behaviours general indicators that a bird is enjoying his bath?

– Fanning tail feathers
– Flapping/fully extending wings
– Fluffing feathers
– Moving towards water

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.


Hi Jay,

Yes, this is typical of how a parrot will enjoy a bath.

Thank you for asking Lafeber,
