Re: TK freaks when i wear my glasses

Basically they think they're preening you by taking something unnatural off of you. Also, predators have large, unblinking eyes. Many birds do not like glasses because when wearing them, YOU have large, unblinking eyes. I wear glasses almost always, and my fids are used to them. Though, sometimes they do try to remove them, and climb onto them.

Re: TK freaks when i wear my glasses

LoL Birds will be birds.
When I began wearing glasses, Mishka totally freaked out. I had to take them off immediately. The following few days, I stood besides his cage talking to him, whilst wearing my glasses. He has never tried to snatch them again.
Guess he just got bored or used to them.

Just be careful that he doesn't get near your eyes, don't want you losing an eye.
My Hahn's climbs up on mine as well. I was driving one time, he did a pull-up on my sunglasses, went to the front of my face then hung upside down and looked right into my face as if to say "Hi!"...while I was doing 70mph...I pulled over, and put him back in his travel cage immediately.

Oh dear.... I guess this isn't really funny but... its funny.

Birds decide to take issue with some of the strangest things; it isn't just your glasses lol. My bird was initially horrified of the big tree branch I got for her and made into a bird tree. What kind of a bird is scared of trees, I ask you? She's since gotten over it with a fair bit of coaxing from me.

P.S. be careful if you have freckles or moles. TK may try to do you the 'favour' of removing them, and parrots make lousy dermatologist.

Re: TK freaks when i wear my glasses

Omg your birds are scared of trees too, I thought it was just mine! Sully hates branches I make for him, loves them when attached to the cage but if I'm holding it, and he sees it, he will scream and fly around the room.
Birds have issues with some things I guess.

Mishka is one of them haha
Two weeks ago we had a black guy repairing a broken window
Mishka stood "upside down" the entire time shouting at him.
He has never shouted at anyone before.
