Re: He flew!!!..

Welcome to the Big Bird Group, Amy! You're now a flyer!

I'm going to guess that he had an appearance of pride and what-the-heck on his face when he landed on the floor!
Congratulations!

Re: He flew!!!..

When BB flies, ( not a freak-out fly) he's like that old submarine movie,"run silent,run deep" I can barely hear him until he is on top of me..I can only imagine what it would sound like if Amy took a zoom around the room Awesome!

Re: He flew!!!..

that's so great to hear! He's finally getting it

I know what you mean about the silent zooms I would find out I hadn't closed the cage right by suddenly feeling a light "thud" into my shoulder as someone would zoom round the corner after me. Not a single flap noise. You wait until Amy starts doing that! You'll start being thankful for the flap sounds!

Re: He flew!!!..

Jim, short flight and an aborted landing because of the phone camera, she hates phones and decided on the secondary landing field at the plant stand.

Re: He flew!!!..

The big body side of the Amazon family tend to have a fair amount of flight noise around the house. This due to their not switching into long range flight mode in most cases. Their gliding and long range flight mode is near silent. We have a couple of flight paths in our home that Julio will switch into long range mode, but when he switches-out, there is a ton of noise as he pushes huge amounts of air under him to both slow down and land. And that thud noise that Bill's video catches is also a bunch louder.

Re: He flew!!!..

If Amy is anything like Trigger (they're close to the same size), he'll be as loud as a small helicopter when he flies.

Trigger still flies like a drunk pilot, but at least he's not like the blind and drunk pilot he was as a baby. Amy probably understands windows better than Trigger, but be careful anyway. As he learns to fly he may fly into things and make pretty messy landings.

...and CONGRATULATIONS!!

Re: He flew!!!..

GGOOOOOO AMY!

My Sugar hadn't learned to fly as young as your Amy. I was told I could not teach a 13 year old bird to fly, but I was determined to have him fly. I started off with running about with him on my arm. As soon as he would feel the wind (yes outside- a bit foolish in hindsight, but I didn't know better), he would tuck his wings in to make as little wind resistance as possible. I then had to train a "wings" command on the stand. Once the command was well trained, I would run with him and shout "WINGS!". Fortunately Sugar is so nice (or stupid) and he would open his wings and the wind would get hold of them. After doing that for some months he eventually flapped his wings and he flew 3-4 meters to the ground. After that we would do this with a harness on with a long lead.

I think it took me about 6 months training before he started flying short bursts. Another 6 months before he got quite good at it.

He will never be as good as the ones who learned flying during their natural fledging. He prefers to fly off my arm and he always lands on the ground. I have tried to teach him to land on other surfaces, but he just doesn't trust them (probably due to quite a few crash landings in his early days and due to me training outside in fields in the beginning, where he could only land on the ground).

So AMY YOU CAN DO IT!
