Re: Nike Picture thread

Nice! Yeah, we focus a lot on the bird-training aspect, but we need training too, don't we? Nike has a great parront.

Not a great pic but Nike enjoying her freeze dried chop while on her perch in front of a screen door.

Re: Nike Picture thread

Four years ago on December 20th we met Nike and took her into our home. There was no need for a second visit as she immediately connected with my wife and I. In retrospect it was a great decision as she is extremely well behaved and bonded with each of us. Like most hawkheads she is territorial so visitors keep their distance which they are happy to do because of her aggressive displays. I'm pretty sure I could never harness train her because she would not like other people coming near her.....my ear would surely bear the brunt of her displeasure. Instead of a harness she goes camping with us and takes walks in her Pak-o-Bird

And because this is a picture thread, here's one from the morning, 12/22/2019, of Nike eating her daily breakfast of Texas Natural Freeze Dried chop.



And one on my shoulder as I type this.

Re: Nike Picture thread

Here's another video. Nike loves to toss all her toys onto the floor. I can stand there for an hour and pick them up and she will continue to toss them out. I think that she's channeling her inner cockatoo.
