Does this comp have a Mr Photogenic segment? If not, why not?! You're such a handsome little man, Cloudy!

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

Stephen...my brother isn't really a "bird person" but when I showed him the vid of your handsome Jolly ( have I ever said I just love those Ekkie faces? ) retrieving the rings..he looked at me wide eye'd...mouth open...shaking his head in disbelivement lol..he was surely impressed!
Great theme this month..wish I had a picture or video to share lol..I don't think throwing food at me counts

Ah, trust training! I LOVE this!!! The foundation upon which all other training is built! And often the toughest one to accomplish, as evidenced by your hard-fought two years, Laura. There's no feeling quite so special as the first time a skittish bird trusts you enough to accept a nibble from your hand... or hesitantly rest a foot upon your finger. No rush indeed. Cloudy is making beautiful progress at his own pace.

Thanks, Jim! I'm glad your brother enjoyed. And you best believe throwing food at you counts! Goes under the 'who's training who' aspect of the contest. I'm so hoping we get to see Amy and Beebs' disciplinary methods in action! Lol!

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

Thank you, my friend!

In the meantime, another JFF training moment...

Training Fail while attempting to get Maya to just lay in the palm of my hand. She'd gotten as far as letting go of my finger with her left foot.
"Great Maya. Now just let go with the other foot. Juuuuuust let go. Please? One-two-three, release! No? How about... now! Maya? I can't feel my finger. Sighhhhh..."

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

LOL, now that's funny. Salty does that trick, it's probably one, if not his most hated, of the tricks he does. He lets go for a count of 2 at most before he swings his head around to give a light nip on the finger to say "ENUF ALREADY". By way of distracting him, once he is on his back in my hand, I give his body a very light squeeze twice; it tells him that yeah this is the trick and not something strange I am going to do to him, and it distracts him for a few seconds.

I saw a video of a parrot show act, where the guy had trained 3 macaws to lie perfectly still and stiff like that as he JUGGLED them. Now , that's a trick!!
