Last weekend I attended a wonderful Phoenix Landing event in Edgewater Maryland. Leigh Ann Hartsfield taught two wonderful classes on parrot care, which she so generously is allowing me to share with all of you who live to far away to attend these classes in person. We hope you find some ideas in these presentations that will help you improve the life of your companion parrot!

The morning class, called The Contented Companion, is a general care class that touched many aspects of meeting the needs of our companion parrots;   such as ideas on how best to set up cages and play areas, healthy nutrition, the importance of fresh air and sunlight, socialization with both human and feathered flock, how to engage that highly intelligent avian brain, and tips for reducing stress.

The afternoon class, called Nourish to Flourish, Edible Enrichments, is the latest in the Nourish to Flourish series, that highlights not only the importance of feeding our companion parrots a nutrient dense diet  for optimum health and longevity, but how food can be used as an enrichment item to add fun and mental stimulation to our parrot’s life.

    This was very inspiring! I loved the foraging ideas for the birds and the ideas of new ways to set up the cages.

    Since my first bird a Green Budgie, for my 8th birthday (in 1958) I have read every book I could find on the care and feeding of pet birds. In the 70’s and 80’s my hunger for knowledge was very hard to satisfy. My collection ranged from Mynahs and Lories to Cockatoos and Toucans.
    This one Email contains more real-world usable information to enrich my birds lives than every book added up over the years (it didn’t help that TFH Publishing re-packaged the same information for decades).
    The internet is a mixed bag of crap. Once in a while it can make lives a lot better, healthier, more interesting and much longer. Thanks!
