    One of Lola's favorite foraging toys is a chunk of zucchini on a skewer. I don't give these to her often but she really goes nuts for them when she gets them. I squeeze sunflower seeds and almonds into the body and she works to get 'em out :) Sometimes she even eats some zucchini! :D

    Here's what it looks like prior to meeting Lola's beak...

    You can see the tongue action!

    Naturally, she goes right for the almond.

    But she doesn't give up once the almond is out!

    After 30 minutes, this is all that remains!

    Brilliant! Between reading about this and the no-sodium plain rice cakes as shredding material our birds will have lots of new "toys" to demolish!
