Breakfast on the lanai
 
Ok, golden girls reference, itís actually breakfast on the back deck in the woods

(My usual warning: Parker is flightless due to barbering - not a light clip, he removed all primary and tail feathers. So I can get away with this. Please do not attempt to take your bird outside without proper free flight training, a harness, or other containment/cage device)

Parker has an amazing view!! He looks great. I canít believe he has no primary or tail feathers due to barbering. So sad. Itís hard to know that sometimes no matter what you do, how hard you try, birds will do what they want. Thank you for pointing that out for anyone unfamiliar with how easily a bird with trimmed wings can fly away.

Great to see Parker enjoying "Breakfast on the lanai." Love the peaceful view!

Our Julio would love it, but we live in Red Tail Hawk flight training central for five families and he knows it!

Oh itís ok. Heís molting now, heíll have them back in a month. Some are already coming in! In all honesty itís a little bit of a blessing. I get to take him out without worrying about him flying away, period end of sentence. Of course first preference is that he not barber at all, but if that is the card weíve been dealt, this ability is a consolation prize. By the time he has all of his feathers grown out and he has flight capability back, itís too cold to go outside.

My friend you’re calling me out and forcing a confession: we have plenty of predatory birds around here as well. This photo is staged, I moved his stand four feet to the left into the sun. His actual set up is like this. Whenever we sit outside and he is on his stand like this (as opposed to sitting directly on me in my chair) he’s ALWAYS under this umbrella to protect against them and other distractions flying overhead that may panic him :) though he has been outside so often very little actually runs the risk of panicking him. He doesn’t startle like he used to.

The old Queen Red Tailed Hawk fly's in low to look into our screened in porch, which sits under the first floor deck. We have been out there when she came in low and fast, but Julio spots her and he screams at her and she back at him.

I'm not sure what the exchange covers, but she doesn't train on those days. He would be an easy target her, but for her young, it would be the other way around. Not that I would want to test that point.

Nice view Chris! "almost" like my back yard..minus the pool!:rolleyes: Amy also loves being out on the "deck" under the umbrella also. We have an occasional hawk fly-by and Amy alerts me before I even see it.
