Re: Right now Salty is.....

I bet secretly Salty was enjoying it. He's such a confident parrot

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Yeah, Triggs , usually he is, but at my daughters house everyone was in her basement family room - hard walls, new hardwood floor and drop ceiling and it was echo-ey as hell. Salty jumped off my shoulder 3 times and needed some reassurance from me, but he calmed down to say a 3 out of a 10 on the nervousness scale, a 10 being "I am OUTA here at any price" and a 1 being same comfort as his cage.

He'll be going out of that zone again Sat; I am taking him with us when I take Geri shopping at Target for lady stuff. Yippee = shoes, handbag, fall clothes and bras ( a hands-on job).

well in such an excitable and different environment is definitely calmer than I would expect. Try to get a couple of pictures of salty at the store for us! I know I need to see more Zon fun! I'm definitely falling into the fraternity but that's a bird for the future I think. Maybe at least when I'm in a house and not an apartment

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Just want to keep Salty's videos on one thread. This is me, trying to put his harness on him, the first time I botch it, the second time it goes smoothly. Salty's such a good boy, he hardly utters a scwauck and lets me manhandle him a lot.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Oh man, did we ever get a concert last night. Salty's been watching and listening to all sorts of opera stuff, sung both by parrots and human divas, and a lot has rubbed off on him. For a good 20 minutes, he gave Geri and I his rendition of.... well we aren't quite sure what, but he was singing in an opera 'voice', using almost words ( like Amazons do) and keeping in pitch and repeating some pretty complex melodies. Geri and I were enthralled and didn't compliment him until it was obvious he was done, for fear of interupting him. He's never done this as long as last night, it was quite extraordinary. And of course I ran for the tablet to record any further songs, but he took his final bows and was hard at work destroying a paper towel tube by the time I got back.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

A new video from last nights training session; Salty does some really well in this one, though the videographer (me) is not so good.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Salty is amazing! Also he's very cute. I never notice this on Bumble, but I'm bigger birds I love how their feathers go down their legs and look like fluffy pants.

And that freakin' laugh,with the "ohhhhhhh" at the end..now THAT makes it all worth while
Salty...you're the bomb birdie!
