After awhile, he taught himself this:

Now he does this 2 ways, this way and he balances the ring on edge and walks thru it, again something I did NOT teach him. Gotta get a vid of him doing both, we call the flip the Old School way, LOL.
These are exceptional, Al! I love watching Salty puzzle out how to walk through the ring himself, so that he can take his treat-earning into his own hands. Shows a head for tricks AND a head for business! You've got a little entrepreneur on your hands!

How awesome is that! I love hearing stories that illustrate that kind of progression of trust. A testament to your patience and consistency as a parront, Laura.

And I completely understand your fear of losing such hard-fought progress. I'd feel the same way in your shoes. And while there might be a setback, I don't doubt you'd be able to regain lost ground soon enough.

Repeated efforts teaching Gabby to fly from downstairs bird room up a curved flight of steps. Managed to capture in-flight images with basic point-n-shoot digital camera. Images roughly 15 years old when she was 10 years young.
Multiple images from same "chop" day, hence pomegranate stains on feet and beak! Reward for flight was small piece of almond, her favorite treat.

January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

In April 2009 Chevrolet reintroduced the arrival of the Camaro nameplate back to their product lineup. Some forty 2010 Orange Metallic Camaros rumbled through streets of Dallas with a police motorcade. It was the first large-scale Camaro event.

A leading sponsor of the car club I am in was a host, taking delivery of the first units in Dallas and playing an instrumental roll in the marketing event.

The dealership’s general manager at the time had a blue and gold as well as an African Gray. Both clipped. Having reflected over the years on Meisha's open air and facility flight training, the GM requested I bring Meisha to his showroom prior to the parade as he wanted to shoot video of her flying over the Camaros. I snapped these two frames on completion:




In a do-over, I would request a copy of the video he shared with his Chevrolet corporate associates.

Briefs of the event can be found @:
Camaros Take Dallas
Shades of Orange

Just for the Fun of It!

Always love the frontal view of a Parrot in flight, as they have that angelic appearance...

Go, Gabby!!! I just love shots of birds in flight! Beautiful! And what amazing shots! I know the challenge of teaching a bird to fly to you from around the corner, so I'm celebrating that victory with you, brother! (Albeit 15 years later.)

Trained in free flight and Camaro engine inspection?!? Most impressive!

How did Meisha do with the flyover? Did all go as planned?

Meisha made two passes as scheduled from the far-side performing a grand hole-shot, to me behind the media staging area, video camera. Didn’t come close to redlining it. However, did follow the orange line.

That was the quietest stable of horses ever experienced.

Re: January 2021 POTM Contest!!!

Nice! Despite the lineup of Camaros, I'm betting she stole the show!

Hey, all! We've reached the ides of January, officially halfway through the contest. Hoping for a deluge of entries for the second half of the month. Remember, we're looking for successes, epic fails, and everything in between. The spectacular as well as the hilarious. Keep them coming!

Roof Launching Made Easy!




Missing flight feathers are prominent.




The profile lines in this one reminds me of the NASA concept Northrop Grumman flying wing.
