Here is the genius of the bird world! This unusual New Zealand mountain parrot lives to play with members of its own kind, inanimate objects - or you! Wonderful aviary birds, these social parrots are best sited where they can see and be seen by their caretakers. To miss their playful antics is to miss the true essence of the bird.
A large aviary should be furnished with a selection of toys, swings, rocks and climbing opportunities. Vigourous and frequent bathers, the opportunity for a daily dip should be available. However, frequent cleaning is necessary as food, toys and rocks will all be deposited in the water…
Constant movement of objects is their absolute delight, and anything new will be scrutinised and - where possible - destroyed!
