banner for webinar on Pet Bird HousingJoin us for a FREE, live, interactive webinar hosted by Laura Doering, former editor of Bird Talk magazine and Birds USA magazine.

Our special guest, Ann Brooks, is co-founder & president of Phoenix Landing Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping pet birds through education & adoption as well as funding research and conservation programs. Ann will discuss the ideal housing for pet birds. Pet birds spend much of their time in cages and often these cages are not large enough to provide the exercise they need to thrive and remain healthy. They are also generally given all of their food in bowls within easy reach, where they can eat all day with little effort.

In this webinar, viewers will learn about the importance of providing opportunities for exercise, enrichment, and action. Ann will talk about how to set up a bird’s environment, especially their cage, for fun and multiple activities! Her tips will include ideas for perches, plants, cleaning, privacy, foraging, the area outside of the cage, and how to set up adjoining play areas.

  1. Apologies for confusing bumblefoot (bacterial infection) and gout (uric acid/kidney issues) during my talk. Help prevent bumblefoot by using a variety of clean perches that facilitate activity and do not aggravate a bird’s feet.
