A large part of the work that Leslie does to improve the health and wellbeing of all species of parrots and finches is research. One part of this is the research journalism she does, locating and reviewing published peer-reviewed scientific papers that provide a strong scientific foundation for her monthly column in Parrots magazine and her books. The second area of research she is involved in is her ‘hands-on’ work with the birds directly under her care, the clients she works with, and the members of the Healthy Bird Project. This second type of research is essential for being able to fine tune the details of her, “Balanced Food Plan for Parrots”, also known as the first, “Balanced Exotic Avian Maintenance Diet Food Plan”. This hands-on work helps ensure this Balanced Food Plan provides a solid approach for all parrot species.
