Cockatude 78 Indoor cages, fluffing, insomnia and more...
While Pippa and Cozma steal the show, Don talks about:

* Does your bird use light to communicate?

* What does it mean when your bird fluffs up?

* Helping a bird to settle at night

* How long does it take to recover from feather damage

A special "Easter Egg" in this show: a preview of the almost 90-minute 4k video "An Insider View of Aviary Time" Patron video. 

Birds use light to communicate? What? Have you ever thought of "florescent semaphores?"

Where should I put my indoor cage? It matters more than one might think.

Polly won't go to sleep? No sleeping pills needed!

Hey, what the fluff is going on? Why are you so fluffy?

Should I enroll my bird in a nudist camp or will those feathers come back soon?

Follow us down the garden path (the one next to the new aviary) for this fresh air episode.
