Re: The Amazonian Times

I think that's nesting behavior there Wes!

I played Merlin and Luna's video talking to each other to Amy. She jumped from her X perch onto the computer desk and ran up to the monitor ( I use a 32 inch flat screen) and Amy got all poofy,head sideways,making all sorts of Amazon sounds lol..I guess she liked it!

Re: The Amazonian Times

The Rb cares nothing about looking at other birds... after all, he isn't one, BUT... he sometimes gets really excited about hearing one! I actually think South American species interest him more than others... oh, and wild Patagonian roostering noises always gets his attention.
Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy, he really likes Luna's vocalizations. So, if she's a girl, he thinks she's hot, and if he's a he, he thinks he would make a good bromance! He kept telling her/him "Rit-roo!" (his phonetic version of a wolf-whistle). But of course stopped when I grabbed my phone!
This thread is fun!

Re: The Amazonian Times

Vacation and earthquakes.
I was on vacation visiting my relation's in southern Oregon From Saturday to Saturday last week. So I missed out on experiencing the series of earthquakes that rocked southern Ca. Because I live in the high desert (Palmdale Lancaster area) I live closer to the epicenter of the quakes than LA proper. I would imagen it felt a good deal stronger than the majority of LA residents.
2 of my Cockatiels injured themselves during the quake. Pinky injured her primary flight feathers on one side and was bleeding. My Son was able to quickly get that stopped. But Sunny also had an injury that was not spotted right away. by the time it was found she had lost a fair amount of blood but it had stopped bleeding by then. Both birds are behaving normally other than preening more that usual.
My wife tells me that Bella was acting strangely before the quake was felt. Bella went to the bottom of the cage (something she never does) and flapping her wings like she was trying to fly. I guess we have our own earthquake alert system, one that works better the phony app for cell phones and tablets.

On a different note Merlin is flying better then ever. We have a vaulted ceiling in the Livingroom/dinning room and yesterday evening he flew to the birds favorite window viewing area. He is use to having to work very hard to fly and with his wing feathers 98% grown in he was very surprised when he found himself grazing the ceiling on the way. I have a connection with these birds and it lets me get into their heads to know what they are feeling. If he could have said what he was feeling at that moment it would have been OH S*&T

I am glad to be home with my Fids, I sure missed them. I hope we are over the worst of the quakes for now.

Re: The Amazonian Times

Letís start out with Luna.
I got Luna as a rescue in December 2 years ago from another member of the PF.
She was a loud screamer but I would say her screaming has been cut about 50%. She rarely screams at Bingo when he is playing or dancing. That was one of the things that was most annoying to me and to Bingo,
Most of her screaming is aimed at Merlin. When Merlin is playing with his toys Luna screams at him. Merlin doesnít pay any attention to Lunas screaming and so her screaming over someone else having fun is slowly reducing.
Luna is no more hand friendly than she was in the beginning and I find that a disappointment. I can still move her by getting her to step up onto my iPad. I know I have made the hand issue worse by accident. These two birds look so identical I sometimes miss-identify the birds and try to pick up Luna (with my hand) the way I would Merlin and then wonder why I got bitten.

Merlin.
Merlinís biggest change is his ability to fly. When I bought him from the breeder his wings had been clipped. He has gone from beginner to confident flyer.

He likes to come down from up high to a close fly by at speed.
He is still hand tame and will step up most of the time.
Biggest problem is that I canít get him to step up when he is inside a cage. When I do pick up Merlin, Luna gets very upset and starts making a loud scream that is unlike any other noise I have heard.
He does not accept scratches from me only from Luna.
He is very playful with his toys and thatís good but his play time turns in to play & scream time.

Bingo.

Bingo is about the same. We just had a nice cuddle this morning. He does sleep a lot but it has been a gradual thing not a change that was all of a sudden. We keep odd late hours. Bingo has the option of sitting in the dark side of his cage or in the light and able to see us and what we are doing. He usually stays up late with his people.

I have not seen any reoccurrence of his sinus troubles this winter. Itís coming up on his hormone time. For Bingo it is usually late December or early January though last year it was mild to nonexistent.

One thing that is new is that Bingo makes a funny errrr sound when he is preening himself. Itís a very low frequency sound and would be hard to record, Itís not all the time just now and then.
