Re: welcome home Orbit

Sounds like amazing progress to me! I bet the folks from the pet shop wouldn't even recognize him anymore. Thank you for rescuing Orbit and giving him such a sweet life!

Re: welcome home Orbit

Thank you, i tend to agree pretty sweet face..
My neighbor started to mow, Orbit felt he better come to me for protection. With fully clipped wings he flew and did a perfect touch down on my shoulder !! And I got a second nice snug session.

What a day! Flew to me for 3rd cuddling session. He us such a great flyer, with clipped wings no less!

Re: welcome home Orbit

Orbit still runs and hides most times he see me... makes me feel like a looser. But today I was sweet talking him, when he ran away, I turned to Ta-dah. I was sweet talking her gave her a kiss, and Orbit came up and poked Ta-dah so she would move. Then he took her place and gave me kisses! Sooo it complicated lol
He did fly to me for 2 different cuddling sessions. And took several treats from me.
I wish we were at tge place were I could grab him up and snuggle when ever I wanted. And that he would always step up.
But I'm so glad non stop screaming is over!!

Re: welcome home Orbit

I made this today after reading Pamela Clark article last night and seeing her do this. Orbit my brave boy/girl has jumped right in to explore! Thought it would take a day or two to get action. I gsve him a piece of popcorn and praised his bravery

Re: welcome home Orbit

I question those zip ties for safety? It's the nature of zip ties to ratchet tighter until they are stopped by something, and to not come loose without cutting. I am quite fearful seeing zip ties with loops large enough for bird to slide head into.
