Thanks christa . I’m not the most camera savvy, but I didn’t particulately care. I wanted to help people in my position - bird never learned to fly, how do I teach? and one of the hardest things to do on a forum is explain any sort of training process in a way that lands with a questioner. There are so many in-the-moment nuances and correction that you can’t really convey.

So many people as this question, so I made this video to explain one of the ways to accomplish this. There are many ways to accomplish this. Steven (SailBoat) has an interesting method that has worked really well for him - I’m still waiting for him to video that

Re: Flight training

Hi everyone. Just a little update; Diamond has been harness trained. He has also been flying outside with his harness. He always just glides down, never really flys. Other than one time that he was trying to show off to my friend and he flew from his perch and landed on my arm. He never does that. But Diamond and I now have a very tight bond and we are still working. I don't think he will ever get to the full free flying experience. But he can still do his recall training outside and enjoy the sun. He is just one of those birds that get easily frustrated. I am just happy that he is happy and healthy and has some freedoms, of course, nothing compares to the freedom of freely flying. But what he does now makes him happy and thrive. So thank all of you for the wonderful advice. I have tried some of the advice and it really helped with his recall training. All this training has also brought our bond very tight and I am like his god, LOL. So Thank yall so much!!!
