As you know from following our Facebook posts, we present enrichment activities to our birds to keep their minds healthy. We are also working on some other training to targets such as lures.
Lures can be an alternate and exciting way to deliver food to our birds. In these photos of Phoenix with our post today, we are using a hunting dog training lure that we modified so we can attach his favorite foods. Phoenix is "playing" with the dog lure with no food present. This is also good exercise for his feet!
