I haven’t found Ringo a FaceTime buddy, but he is getting board with his video playlists. I changed them up and it reanimated him. I think he’d enjoy visiting Cotton so let me know!Mine definitely recognize their cockatiel buddy on video calls and voices of people they know.
@HSRivney I'm hoping to get a hand me down old iPhone to see if Cotton would be interested I bet he will!
I also took really really slow steps toward interacting, and now a little over one year Cotton will take treats from my fingers, and stays pretty calm when I approach him. He is still VERY anxious about being touched or "caught" so vet visits tend to undo progress, but I'm a bit ahead this year compared to last, so over time I think we'll keep moving forward.
Thanks for sharing your progress. It’s been almost a year here. He will touch the treat in my hand but won’t take it. If I leave the treat on the platform with his iPad running Ringneck videos then he will sit there with his ‘friends’ and eat it in front of me.
Been using a tail feather as a ‘target’ but he prefers the treat. He’s molting so I’ve backed off a bit to lower his stress.
Been busy with a sparrow orphan, sorry to be AWOL.
