Re: My free flying cockatiels

Man.. i'm sorry, this forum doesn't send me notifications when i receive answeres.. i didn't notice!
Sometimes I hear the call of raptors but they are rare.. hopefully. Now it's been more than 4 monthes since they are free outside, everyday for many hours of the day.

Re: My free flying cockatiels

Thatís amazing, however arenít you worried about hawks?
I have way too many birds of prey in my neighborhood, thereís no way I could do that. Iíve even had bald eagles fly over my house.

Re: My free flying cockatiels

I have a lot of hooded crows but they are never gonna be able to catch them.. they don't even try actually, but if they get any near my tiels fly away like crazy. Very rarely I saw some hawk but i'm not too much concerned, there are so many birds easier to catch around here, rats and squirrels.. tiels are incredibly good flyers. Usually birds of prey attack from above when the prey is eating/nesting/sleeping.. my tiels are in the cage when they do so. A little risk is always there i guess.. I don't know what my tiels would choose if they'd understand the risks, I only know what I would choose
In your case, if you are surrounded by raptors you have no choice of course! Hell, even bald eagles! That's National Geographic's stuff!

Re: My free flying cockatiels

I would be so scared to free fly my birds outdoors. I love all the videos, and it must be so amazing to just have your bird swoop in through the window. Imagine the joy these birds get out of flying in an open space! But still, I would never do it with my birds. They are happy just flying indoors, and I wouldn't risk their lives just to have them fly in a bigger space.

Re: My free flying cockatiels

That's an understandable choice and I agree that they are totally happy just flying indoor.
I do it only because the area where I live is appropriate.

Re: My free flying cockatiels

I free fly some of my birds, but have a lot of kestrels in my area (one has even decided to live under my roof), so anything smaller than an ekkie, I wouldn't dare to free fly.

It look soo good, I wish I had your filming skills. Most of my vids are all shaked up. Most of my vids are small recalls, that I can do, when I have to have nuts and treats also.

Re: My free flying cockatiels

Trust me I have no filming skills, I just hold my phone and try to aim the birds xD
You fly your birds at home or you drive in some other location?

Here's an other one

Re: My free flying cockatiels

You get better videos than me. I did however get this one 2 days ago, where I got the last part of the flight.


Yes I usually fly at my farm. I might drive to a flatter location if I am at a stage with a bird, where I need flat terrain without trees.
