Talking Location Location Location Bird Food Real Estate?

About 2 months back I put a treat stick in SPX's cage for him to destroy, I placed it in the usual spot where he and his cage mates use to sit and destroy previous seed treats but he ignored it.

I hadn't given him a treat stick in 8 months or more so I thought he'd get right to the destruction of it. NOPE. He was not interested in it.

I threw the treat out for the wild birds to nom and get some diabetes and said the heck with SPX. Until today when I put a new treat stick in and placed it in a new spot in the cage. This spot is not where SPX hangs out much, Mr Peeper's loved to hang out there and play with the beaded mirror toy and stare at his beautiful pink face all the time.

I was surprised to hear the pitter patter of seeds falling to the cage floor a little while ago. So I took a look, I suppose Location Location Location is and can be the key!


What?

Can I do something for you Sir?




If you don't mind I'm busy here.... no time for chit chat.





Man this is some awesome honey stick thingy!
I wonder why my human doesn't give me these more often?

He doesn't like the green one I put in there so pink it is!

This bird has some strange rules about positions of "things/food/treats" in his cage so I don't like to mess with this and cause any more problems for me.

It's a little hard to see but he's been actively putting a DENT in the seed stick.

I thought SPX enjoyed being destructive and just liked wrecking the treat stick.

I didn't think he actually ate any seeds, but this proved me wrong.

I see husks!

He's having a ball with this treat stick there's a massive hole in the middle where he's been chomping at it.

I hate the location of this treat stick because the husks and seeds fall out of the cage and sometimes stick to the wall and land on the carpet at the back of the wall and cage. It's a pain in the butt having to move the cage every evening and vacuum all the mess.

One of those lasts a whole 2-3 minutes in my aviary I'd have to hang up at least 10 to keep them all from fighting over it like vultures at a carcass! I've tried giving the larger birds some but they seem to think it's a shredding challenge. He looks very happy with his!

SPX has been busy and its good because he's leaving me alone while he's on his treat stick destructive quest.

My 'keets from way back when loved those. I wonder what Digby would think.
