He flew!!!..
 
. :eek: :D! Amy!! yippeeee!!!! We were in the computer room and he was on his new "X" perch Uncle David made as a Christmas present for both of them. I was vacuuming the hall then the 'puter room,picking up nutraberry debris and the likes. The sound of the vac must have gotten him scared and he jumped off the perch and flapflapflapped to the floor...and DIDN"T crash land!! He went about ten feet or so. The sound of those arms waving were amazing and music to my ears :60:
What an awesome sight and sound. My little green dino is learning to fly!

That's great news. Looks like the training is taking hold.

Hot dayam, way to go amy!

That’s your cue Jim! I got into recalling Parker when he would only fly when scared, and when he did it was always a crash landing. You’ve got your foundation. Build, young mason! Build!

OK Jim, I must be the only one here that had no idea that Amy wasn't already a flier. Had he been clipped for a long time or was he just lazy? ;)

I gotta tell you flying is great...and it's not. Nike will fly to me no matter where I am on the lower floor of the house. If I'm lucky and can sneak out of the living room while she is busy doing something it's only a minute or two before I hear the sound of her wings, to which I call her name to let her know where I am and await her landing on my shoulder or head.

All this is great when I've got nothing better to do than walk around with a bird on my shoulder but not so great when I have things to do and will result in me putting her in her cage when I need to get something done or have a conference call.

She absolutely will not stay in a room if I'm (or my wife if I'm not home) not there and will constantly seek me out. kind of cool...and not ;)

Nike sounds very much like BB Bill..As soon as he hears me he is seeking me out.

Bill, No,Amy never learned to fly...it was my fault actually. He was only four months old when he came home with me,and me not knowing any better kept his sleeves short because he was always going places with me and he was going to be my co-driver in my tractor-trailer. I just "assumed" (back then :rolleyes:) that flying was a basic instinct and didn't realize until years later that they needed to be taught,and twenty-nine years later that's what I'm trying to do lol.

I was SO happy to read this! :)


No more helpless crashing to the floors, but nice (sort off) controlled landings from now on.


Great step-- al your (both of you!) hard work pays off \o/ \o/ \o/
