"beak wiping"

Post by mattw » Fri Oct 26, 2007 12:54 am

Have you ever heard of beak wiping (on a limb or a twig) as being a form of body language with birds?

I have a Gold-Capped Conure and he rubs his beak when he is comfortable/happy. He does it as a part of his general cleaning habits and preening.
