He leans into it, fluffs his feathers, closes his eyes, and just seems to be in heaven. His species is from a very windy, arid land, so I don't worry about his skin or feathers getting dried out. Now that we're up on the North Coast, I'm glad to have taught him. I'd tell you how we started doing that, but I can't recall! Hey, it was a long time ago! Not sure it would be good with/for other parrots...
Can I ask if your dryer is teflon coated? Worth checking
