Re: Right now Salty is.....

Ah yes, the stink eye. Some parrots have raised giving the stink eye to almost an art form. Salty has it down cold. Our little BeeBee parrot, Max, (RIP), had not a shred of it. Talk about reading body language, skip the body - with Salty its all about the eyes. Although he has calmedd down immensely from his puberty phase (seems he trained me to know when he gently mouths my finger or hand that a real nip is next), the "EYE" is ever vigilant and all seeing. Part Sauron, maybe?

Tonights training session was such a joy. Salty was running, really running from trick to trick, pausing only from getting his reward to take a peek over the edge of our training table ( coffee table) to see what tricks were left ( I have them lined up on the floor next to the table). He has started embellish one of our older tricks, playin the xylophone. So the trick used to be he plays the x-phone, then I play it while he sings these 4 specific notes, and then he does an encore. Tonight Salty was actually singing while he was playing the instrument. Geri and I were shocked and suitably impressed - this is like the 3rd or 4th time he took it upon himself to alter a trick !! Parrots have to be the smartest animals!!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Shot a new training video tonight, and added it here in addition to a new thread I posted earlier.
Salty doing every trick he knows, except the card trick and the slide. Hope y'all enjoy it.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Just one of Saalty and I, mugging for the camera. Salty is not fond of looking at himself in the tablet.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Right? I had the tablet in reverse camera, so we saw our selves on the screen. I'm tellin' you he does NOT like to see other Amazons. Greys OK, 'toos OK, and ring necks he loves to watch and immitate them. So wierd.

On the otherhand, tonights training session was hysterical, because he was running around the table top, looking over the edge to see all the toys a tricks laid out on the floor. Runnng to the next trick - Geri and I were laughing so hard. Salty was so eager to do the trick and get his little treatie.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

You know sometimes I post on here becasue Salty learned a new trick, or because he did or said something funny or memorable. Nope not this one. Its a 'Just Becasue' post. Just becasue I am blessed with a parrot, a wild animal, a evolutionary cautionary tale, a bird. He says Hi to me at night, loves my company ( most times) and I think he makes me a better person. He might not actualy, it may be I am anthromorphasizing(?) but he sure does make me smile a lot, and most days thats all I need.

Thanks Salty boy!

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty harnessed up for a trip to the pet store, to replenish his supply of toys to destroy. He was singing in the car when i put the Spanish music station on, and why not? He is from Venezuela after all! The folks at the store love him and he got his picture taken a few times, even the gas station guy took one. SOme lady and I struck up a conversation becasue she has a U2, who screams all the time. I sent her here, so dont be surprised if she shows up for advce. I think Salty really likes car rides, he looks out the side windows so intently. Un-harnessed easily. But I bet tonight he will refuse the harness trick when we train.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty passed a test tonight! I've documented here how he kinda hates my youngest son Brett. No reason, he just decided one day that Brett is the boggie man and must be hated. So tonight, Brett came over a few minutes before trick training time (8:45 PM, sharp). He sat and acted as the audience for Salty's whole session, which he hadn't seen in a long time ( Brett lives in NYC). Not only did he laugh at Salty's new tricks but at every time he broke out with his maniacal laugh. And Salty went thru our routine without nary a hitch or a spread tail feather. I guess thats the sign of a true performer, to ignore your audience and do it for your own enjoyment - and Salty did.
