Birds are smart cookies. They are problem solvers, puzzle players and they tend to learn very quickly. If you have ever seenAlex the African Grey’s videos where he works a problem, counts objects and gives the right answer to many questions about those objects, you will see the intelligence this bird had immediately. Crows have been seen not only using tools to solve problems but actually modifying the tools to make them work more efficiently.
There are foods that can help with your bird's brain function.

Eggs

B" foods: bananas, blackberries, blueberries, broccoli rabe, brown rice and Brussels sprouts

Proteins are also important for proper brain function -lentils, peas, walnuts, almonds, wheat germ and cranberries.
