About Us

Scenic Bird Food was the first to pioneer the use of extrusion technology to manufacture foods for exotic birds.

Scenic Bird Food was begun in 1986 by a collaboration of exceptional animal scientists and caregivers. Scenic Bird Food designs, manufactures and distributes quality bird foods for every stage of life. Scenic Bird Food was the first to pioneer the use of extrusion technology and other healthy processes to manufacture foods for exotic birds. Through scientific research and rigorous product testing, Scenic Bird Food has improved feeding protocols, nutrition, health, and reproduction of rare and endangered birds maintained in captivity throughout the world.

Working with a collaboration of exceptional researchers, scientists, and caregivers, Scenic Bird Food has introduced products that have resulted in better feeding protocols, better nutrition, better health, improved reproduction, and improved ease of use and economy. These products now improve the health, conservation, and reproduction of the rarest and most endangered species of birds, including the Black Palm Cockatoo (San Diego Zoo), Red and Blue Lory (Kula Eco Park), Bali Mynah (Private Aviary) and the Buffon's Macaw (Amigos de las Aves).

Scenic Bird Food was originally developed for large mixed aviaries. One three-year study involved 400 birds representing almost 670 captive species. At the conclusion of this study, the results were presented to the Association of Avian Veterinarians and the Association of Zoo Veterinarians in 1986.

The groundbreaking results of this study were also published in the prestigious Journal of Nutrition in 1991. If you'd like to read the full article, you can link to "Formulated Diets versus Seed Mixtures for Psittacines1 ,2" on the Journal of Nutrition web site or download the PDF.

In 1985 Scenic Bird Food became the first extruded diet available to the public and was widely advertised in Bird Talk, Bird World, Bird Breeder and many other magazines including the Journal of Wildlife Medicine.
