Exotic birds live, play, sleep, forage, preen and sleep in the middle and upper canopy of their forests in the wild. Nature was sure to abundantly provide the very foods their systems require to thrive in those two places. Most of those foods are tropical fruit, tender green leaves that are just beginning to grow, young bark and lots and lots of insects, grubs and larvae!
