One of the best things you can do for your bird is to limit your petting and cuddling. For most birds, especially cockatoos and cockatiels, petting outside of a few areas is considered mating behavior and will encourage hormone production or exacerbate sexual frustration. ⠀ ⠀ When your bird is hormonal, it’s often best to limit petting in general and instead focus on hands-off interactions. If you want to show your bird the appropriate type of affection, you should only pet the head, neck and feet. In the wild, only a mate will touch or preen outside of these areas, so you don’t want to give your bird the wrong signals. ⠀ ⠀ Parrot hormones are particularly sensitive to this, so you should do your best to be mindful of your companion’s needs. Encouraging mate-like behavior can be frustrating to your bird and damage your long-term relationship. ⠀ ⠀ Visit us online for more details - www.birdstreetbistro.com⠀ ⠀ ▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃▃⠀⠀⠀ #BirdStreetBistro #fids #birdfood #avian #exoticbird #BirdsOfInstagram #birdstagram #bir#birdlover> #par#parrot #parrot #birdnutrition #healthybird #macaw #africangrey #cackatoos #amazon #conures #parakeets #cockatiels #birdfoodie #petbird #smartbird #engagednotcaged #featheredfriends #loveyourbird #parrotmania #birdlover #parrottofig #macawlove #parrotlife

Rural (Left) Urban (Right) a study by @lunduniversity found that Urban birds suffer in city environments. They have more stress levels, die more prematurely and struggle because of light & air pollution along with noise and lack of habitat. Next time you’re in the city or urban space pause for a moment and think about be birds. 🐦 . . . . . . #best_moments_nature #nature_captures #natureatitsbest #bestnatureshots #naturemoments #naturelovers #birdnerd #nutsaboutbirds #britishbirdlovers #scottishwildlifetrust #scottishbirds #ukgardenbirds #eye_spy_birds #naturecaptures #birdwatching #naturephotography #birdsofinstagram #gardenvisitor #gardenwildlife #springwatch #birdsong #plasticfreeliving #glasgow #birdphotos #birdfood
