Re: Right now Salty is.....

My favorite parrot legs go to the caiques, who look like they have a pair of pants on, esp when they are excited - they fluff them up, too. Saltys species, Yellow SHoulder Amazons, when they are mature , like 5+ years have yellow thighs and legs. Salty has a little touch of yellow now. Hey! Thats a good pirate name - Parrot Leg Pete.

Ok I don't mean to spoil Salty's thread with an utterly cute parrotlet, but tonight during playtime I looked over and realized I CAN see her pants!

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.
Wow! Salty is so talented. I wish I could meet him. As for parrot pants: I used to say Gabby had yellow socks and green pants. If you look at a DYH, you'll see it's true.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Awesome videos, Al! I see from that harness video you're a finger fumbler like I am. Unlike Maya, though, Salty has patience on the level of Job. Lol! I'd NEVER have been able to successfully pull off a 2nd attempt after botching the first. That would've been all she wrote for that day.

And as always, I enjoyed the training video. You can see just how much that bird loves his training time with you.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Inger Bumble is so cute you can thread steal all you want! So tiny, but all parrot.

Anasi - he is into it most nights, but as you know, parrots have their moods and once in awhile Salty is like "mmeehhh, let's not tonight". I let him decide. ANd then there are other nights when he is so eager, he looks over the edge of the table to see all the toys and tricks I've laid out on the floor for the nights session.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

Having his lunch, after going to the pet store with me to get more Roudybush pellets. Of course he always gets a new toy ( or 2 or3). Got his picture taken 3 times. I put his harness on today with a minimum of fumbling and I think he finally understands that the harness means we are going out and many treats will be given for being a good boy.

Last night i went to a jam session and Geri tried to do Saltys normal training session with him ( she's done it a few times before) but Salty was not having it and nipped her a few times before she realized that he wanted Daddy to do the training - in fact he was calling 'Daddy" in a plaintive voice a few times. i got home late ( 11 ish) and put them both to bed, ha ha.

Re: Right now Salty is.....

I have a dream once in awhile...Amy is free-flight trained and I take her out to a huge open field,put her on a tall T-stand and tell her to "go fly"..she looks at me,then jumps off her stand,and as she is zooming all around,she is yelling out "Weeeeee!! look at me Daddy! I'm flying I'm flying! Weeeeeee!!"

I have a huge on my face for the rest of the day!
