Re: should I let my conure sit on my shoulder?

My lil critters are welcome to perch anywhere they wish. Bite pressure training took maybe 2-3 "discussions" and no mo bitty bird has emerged. Never used a "time out" to try to get a bird to change a behavior.. I do get love nibbles which are on a dif level. On flight... I regret the day a careless vet tech permanently injured my lil Boogers left wing. He was such a skilled flyer and a joy to watch him in action. As far as what I need to teach my birds or "un teach" I always keep in mind that these are birds.. NOT children... hence more behaviors are driven by instinct. Im content to let a bird be a bird.
