Did you know that birds are very intelligent creatures capable of learning a variety of tricks? Teaching your feathered friend some new skills is not only fun but also provides them with much-needed mental stimulation. Here are a few easy and entertaining tricks you can teach your pet bird.

Step Up and Step Down

The “step up” and “step down” commands are the foundation of bird training. These tricks involve teaching your bird to step onto your finger or a perch on command and then back onto their cage or another perch when instructed. These are also essential tricks for handling your bird safely and establishing a communication line between you two.
