Mushka T.V.

Sponsored Links
So I wanted to share videos, stories, pictures, etc. of Mushka But I didn't want to clutter the forums or other peoples posts. I have seen several great posts from others on the forum that consolidated everything so it looked like a good idea. I doubt it will be as entertaining as those, but I would love to give it a shot. So to start here are a couple of time waster videos, both safe for work.

Every night for about thirty minutes to an hour Mushka loves head scritches. She is almost always open to them but if she doesn't get them right before bed there is gonna be trouble.


On the other end of the day, Mushka always chatters nonstop in the mornings. She honestly chatters all the time but mornings are always entertaining. I spent about a month going to see her daily before I got her and she had only said "Hello" and "Mushka". I was pleasantly surprised when she got home and talks all the time.

Re: Mushka T.V.

Creating a "master thread" for Mushka is a great idea! She is certainly a well adjusted and bonded bird!

Re: Mushka T.V.

nice, wondering if ALL greys like head scratches for that long prior to bed time, Enzo does but I try to limit to a few minutes to avoid more broodiness. I always giggle when I stop scratching her as she will grab one of fingers with her beak and pull it towards her by turning her head to one side.
I should do an Enzo thread too, both the good and the bad!

Re: Mushka T.V.

Perjo will let me scratch her head for an hour before bed if I wanted to. Love these videos of people's Greys. How does she respond when you play guitar?

Re: Mushka T.V.

I think you'll find that having a home thread is a lot of fun ! Mushka certainly hit the jackpot with you. Does she like being scratched against the grain of feathers? Salty LOVES LOVES LOVES that.

Re: Mushka T.V.

I would like an Enzo thread, from what I have read on other posts she sounds like a trip. Mushka drags my hand around too, Does Enzo constantly try to shove toys in your face too? We should compare notes lol.

Surprisingly Muska loves the guitar, never spooked her. The vacuum never spooked her either but the new training perch is apparently evil, been two weeks and she still hates it. Back on subject, Mushka seems to enjoy music a lot. She will sing along (usually her own tune) and dance when I play, and she loves to come to band practice when it's warm enough. She loves to dance with my daughter. Especially to some god awful "Cake" song. She also sings and whistles her own songs she learned at some point. I'll eventually get some on film.

Yes Mushka loves being scratched against the grain of her feathers. Honestly I was being more gentle then what she usually likes. She has some new feathers coming in and if they were sore I didn't really want to scratch hard.

And here is another time waster video, Mushka likes to see herself in the camera.

Re: Mushka T.V.

Mushka makes some really cute sounds and words. I like her sneezing! I wouldn't be surprised if she starts saying "God Bless you". I wonder if you play a riff over and over a lot, that she would;t copy it. That would be cool. I see an accoustic in the back ground - what kind of stuff do you play? I'm a fiddle player. Guitar too, but mostly fiddle.

She might pick something up, she has a tendency to go nuts dancing and singing when I play though so I'm not sure if she really listens. I'll start trying to play something everyone would recognize though. Maybe Crazy Train. Here is a vid of my band to give you an idea of the stuff we play. 3D Monocle
We recently had a lineup change so it's a bit dated and we are going more hard rock currently.

Back to the Mushka, she and I were watching parrot videos and we saw bigfellasdad's video of Enzo's fancy drinking Link to Enzo and Mushka loved it. I got home from work today and my daughter said Mushka learned a new trick:


Apperently Mushka thinks Enzo is the bomb, but to be honest she isn't nearly as Posh as Enzo lol. She loves water bottle caps and dunking her food in her water but this was a first.

Re: Mushka T.V.

Hahaha. These birds are awesome. 4th most intelligent animals after humans don't you know. Maybe we should start an African grey training channel where they train other greys and humans too.

Same w/ Levi, we have a ritual nighttime cuddle, scratch, love routine every night for an hour + before bedtime. If I'm busy he starts calling to let me know it's his time ... Ha He especially loves his cheeks & neck scratched/rubbed.
