I’ve been struggling for so long trying to teach our amazon to forage. Leaving him in his cage while we work all day puts a lot of stress on me. I’ve also struggled to teach him to forage or just get him interacting with his toys. This webinar helped me see where I have been taking too big of steps in trying to teach him. You also helped me realize so many ideas I could have been implementing but didn’t understand. I’m so excited to tell you that Charlie, my amazon has been foraging ever since I watched this webinar and is now very eager for the opportunity. I can’t thank you enough!!! I also love that all live-streamed, parrot-related webinars are free to those subscribed to The Parrot Project. Thank you for all you do for the parrot community!

I’m excited to tell you that the screaming and behavior issues we have been having with our parrots in this household has decreased drastically since we began implementing many of the ideas you suggested. Our birds are so busy foraging for their food. You always say “In order to change a behavior, you must replace it with another.” I now finally understand, the foraging has replaced much of the screaming and the birds now anticipate eating in a way to obtain goals! Thank you!
