Captain Sullybirder

Sponsored Links
I'm a new Eclectus owner and I just wanted to introduce Captain Sullybirder ("Sully") to everyone. He is ~6 months old and is settling in nicely to his new home. I look forward to learning more from everyone here that has more experience with these amazing birds!

Re: Captain Sullybirder

Just the name gets him off to a great start. Make this an ongoing Sully thread, and post in it regularly to keep us up to date!

Sully!

Love it...
From the movie... "Brace, brace, brace! Heads Down! Stay down!"

We actually say this when the Rickeybird's on the loose, too!

Welcome!

Beautiful Eclectus, love the name! Hopefully he can land in water as gracefully as Sully's Airbus!!

Re: Captain Sullybirder

Whelp, today Sully bird was agreeable to step up for me after a few attempts when i came home from work and he was very energetic today. His wings are clipped but you could tell he was ready to explore. He would jump off my hand and glide to the ground and then take off running like a crazy little man and then climb up anything he could come to. He DID NOT like me trying to interrupt his crazy adventures by picking him back up and perhaps now he's being a bit moody because of it. He hasn't wanted anything to do with me for the rest of the evening. So me and my Sun Conure Tiki are playing at my desk while Sully can observe from his cage. *sigh* This patience thing is hard with the trust building when I just want him to see what fun we could have :-) I just have to remind myself that he's entitled to have "had enough" and I can try again tomorrow. Crazy Tiki is happy that Sully's attitude means more play time for him :-)

I love the visual, but let's all promise not to try this very demanding type of landing with this Sully!

Look forward to your updates!!!

He just LOOKS like a Sully. Mr. Cool. Needs somed dark glasses and a little Sully-stache.
