Captive Foraging: The Next Best Thing to Being Free

by Dr. M. Scott Echols

This innovative DVD is destined to change the way caretakers view their captive birds. Based on the model of the natural foraging instinct of all animals, author and videographer Dr. M. Scott Echols introduces the concept of including a foraging tree in a bird's enclosure for environmental enrichment. The video describes how a foraging tree can potentially reduce the incidence of unwanted behaviors in captive birds. Also included are step-by-step directions on how to use a foraging tree as well as safe foraging toys for birds. A separate Special Feature details scientific information about the bird species included in the program. Topics covered include understanding the natural foraging instinct of all animals; preventing unwanted behaviors, such as feather destruction and repetitive functionless activity; build a foraging tree for captive birds; and creating foraging toys — from basic to advanced — to keep birds occupied and happy. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to qualified avian research projects selected by the author.
