Talking Merlin's first flight

Merlin's flight feathers have been growing back at a steady rate.
The long feathers at the end of the wing (sorry I don't know the proper name) what would be equivalent to fingers for us.
He is still missing 2 on each side but the others are there and almost full size.

Most of his flights went down quickly and he never went more that 6 feet. Today's flight was more than double the distance 12 feet or more.

He has been exercising he wings anytime I have him on my hand. I knew he could do it.
cockatiel family :
Lucky (M pied)
Baby (M pied)
Pinky (F lutino)
Sunny mother (cinnamon)R.I,P.
Cheeky father (whitface)
Angel (eldest lutino F)
Mango (middle pearl F)
Popeye (male grey M)

That’s so exciting! It’s such an amazing feeling witnessing that, so happy for you and Merlin!

Oh and those feathers? Those are the primary feathers
