Re: My untamed cockatiel got spooked while training this morning.

Too fast, too fast. Taming a flighted parrot takes time. She has no reason to let you come near her or for her to stay with you. So, start over, like it was day 1 only really take your time. Work at her pace, not the pace of your expectations.
See ALL Salty's Parrot trick videos on our CaptNiceGuy Channel:
AL & Salty - hard at work.
