Scenic bird foods were originally created by Marion Zoological for parrots kept in zoos. Contains 21-24% protein and is intended to be 50% of your bird’s diet, where fresh fruits and vegetables are fed regularly.
The elongated shaped food looks like a “Cheeto”. It is approximately 3/4 inch in length and 1/4 inch in diameter.
This shape is for parrots who like to hold their food with their feet before eating.
Some of the birds that will enjoy this food are Senegals, Cockatoos, Macaws, Amazons and Greys. This mix contains all the Scenic flavors Red Apple, Corn and Chili Spice all flavors mixed together. Jungle Mix is Scenic’s most popular product.
Note: The current batch is much darker colored all the way around with the pellets. The manufacturer states it is due to the current natural ingredient colors. This is likely to change on future batches. The tastes and quality ingredients are still the same.

- Introduce it to your bird first in a separate cup from seeds.
- If fed with fruits and vegetables, offer enough Jungle Food to last your bird all day.
- Provide your bird fresh water daily.
- Store food in a cool and dry location.
- Keep food covered when not in use.
- Refrigeration of food is not required.

What makes Scenic Bird Food different?
Bird behavior and socialization in the wild is focused on eating, breeding, and fleeing.
Scenic Bird Food is manufactured to the highest standards resulting in nutritionally balanced morsels. These morsels are then offered to the bird along with fruits, vegetables, nuts, and occasional meats and treats. For more information, please review the Feeding Conversion sections within each product.
The sizes, shapes and textures of Scenic Bird Food is meant to encourage the natural eating behavior of birds while guiding them toward nutritional responsibility.
Since there are many species living in diverse habitats around the world, it is not practical nor advisable to develop a different food for each one of them. Instead, birds in captivity must be cared for by offering them a stimulating variety of foods while controlling their lack of nutritional wisdom toward the foods we have to offer. And the foods we offer should meet their needs for eating and socialization, nutrition for growth and breeding, and energy requirements for playing and fleeing.
After twenty-five years, Scenic is a whole new way of feeding and caring for birds in captivity; we hope after trying our foods you will agree we have met these goals.
Scenic Bird Food is fed by owners, breeders, rescue centers, veterinarians and aviaries on four continents.
Having pioneered the revolution to replace seeds with manufactured foods nearly three decades ago, Scenic is now the predominant component of foods fed to exotic birds in zoological institutions, aquaria, and aviaries.
