Re: Mushka T.V.

That's cool !!! Parrots can see video, and learn from watching them. Salty's favorites are Indian ring necks, for learning words and phrases, them and other amazons. And parrots are smart enough to come up with their own stuff.

I am gonna try your idea with the bottle cap with Salty, be a good way to get fruit juice into him. Bravo, Mushka.

Re: Mushka T.V.

Happy New Year everybody!

So New years eve brought fireworks and Mushka was not a fan. So we played with my new yoyo from Santa and wrestled a bit until she calmed back down and could go to bed. Just another time waster video but the last bit shows how well bite pressure training is going. She gets pretty excited and it is rare we have to call time out to let her calm down at this point. She still wants to eat my dog though. Later this week I'm going to start posting some of her training videos so that should be fun.

Re: Mushka T.V.

They’re so very intelligent! Learning bite pressure training is the way to go with our greys. I’m thankful for it! They learn well and understand.

I wish I could take credit for the training but Mushka picks up everything easy. The only time consuming part is getting he desensitized to things, once she is comfortable around something training seems like an afterthought. Ten days to get used to a chopstick, 2 days to get the gist of target training.

I was initially concerned about getting a larger, re-homed, aggressive parrot but Mushka has been a dream parrot. I see all these dedicated wonderful people spending months trying to form bonds with their birds and I realize just how lucky I got.

Re: Mushka T.V.

So I am a bit late posting a training video but it's been crazy around here. This is Mushka's second target training session, unfortunately the first one was in the morning and got washed out by the sun and not worth viewing. It's interesting to look back and see how well she is doing compared to those first sessions. Also all the mistakes I made, I still make mistakes but they are fewer and farther between them.

At around 5:20 of the video whats happening starts to click with Mushka. She intentionally doesn't touch the target stick to see what I do, then immediately touches the stick on the next time I present it. She often does this when we are trying something new, you can see the wheels turning like "Oh that's what he wants."

Re: Mushka T.V.

Just another video of Mush chatting away. One of these days I'm gonna edit these together to get a mega Mooshie talking video.

Re: Mushka T.V.

About the Fireworks. We shoot a lot in the warmer months at our cabin.
Therefore, I purposely desensitized Levi. Every time we get a package delivered I give my son the bubble wrap or air bags to pop. I throw them on then floor & he stomps on it, and we hoot & howl & cheer as he does it. Now every time Levi hears a loud popping sounds he makes a celebratory sound.

PS) I enjoy your Videos VM
