Merlin cought me flat footed today.

When I got Merlin he had the step up command down solid.
So I have mostly been working on the two birds getting along together and keeping
my distance. I handle them and all but just in/out of the cage.
Recently I have been picking up Merlin and carrying him back to the couch
to sit with me.
I don’t keep him from leaving and he can fly away anytime.

Merlin also has a habit common with alot of flighted birds.
He likes to swoop in from on high and pull up when he gets close.

So after sitting with hem for a bit he flew off to his cage.
But he flew back!!
It was so unexpected when he got close and put on the brakes.
I did not get my hand up in time but I am going to be ready next time.

Luna use to fly to me (but never to land on a hand, just close by) until I Got Merlin.
If Merlin fly’s to me Luna will almost certainly follow.

Amy a Blue Front 'Zon
Jonesy a Goffins 'Too who had to be rehomed :-(

And a Normal Grey Cockatiel named BB who came home with me on 5/20/2016.
I wish Amy would at least TRY to fly. My brother has said if Amy flew there would be a lot of flapflap noise going on,and he'd be chasing the Beeb's everywhere lol. As it is he walks down the hall's saying HELLO? looking for the little guy.
Good that your two can do what they were born to do Wes.
