You certainly are right about that Farnoosh. No more awe-inspiring treat than winning the trust of a sweet little soul like Paisley. Beautiful pic, my friend! ❤️
Thank you my friend! You inspired me to keep persisting!🥰

Horrible quality photo, but it's the best I could do because I didn't want to move and took this on my PC camera on a very dark rainy day, BUT… View attachment 31425

here is my baby Paisley snuggling up to me, which is THE ultimate and the best TREAT I could ever ask for since up until today, she was completely afraid of my hands and/or body parts! Huge progress for the sweetheart and I! Very happy:) :)
I love this picture and what it represents so much! That is the best feeling in the world and Paisley looks so happy and at peace all snuggled up.

Aaaawwwwwwwww thank you Farnoosh! That's very sweet of you to say :) But I think there was a certain little "somebirdy" who had a lot more to do with that than me ;)

Nice pic, Farnoosh !! Persistence almost always pays off with parrots. They are stubborn like mules, most of them. Paisley will no doubt get more and more comfortable with you now, though.
Thank you! Yes they are stubborn, I am only discovering that now! Especially the female ones, from my experience, they are tough! :D I love the name of your parrot Salty by the way and I have watched your videos on YouTube:) I am of Persian descent, and in Persian language we have a term that translates to "salty" and it's an expression we use for people who are full of character, humor, and life! Never knew the term existed in English though!🥰 Love it!

For this month, show off your birds doing tricks, playing tricks on you, eating yummy treats or dressed up in costume!


Photoshop is allowed and videos of 90 seconds or less are welcome.

The trick doesn't need to be anything elaborate, and can include them stepping up or anything else they have been taught to do.

For the treats, as long as they are healthy anything goes:)


*A reminder that you can upload your pictures straight to the forum now! This makes it so easy, and the pictures uploaded to the forum will be visible on the homepage if you win. Any photos linked from other sites (such as Imgur) won't be visible and would need to be uploaded to the forum upon winning.*

The contest will run until the morning (MST) of October 29th, and a poll for voting will go up then. The winner will be announced on November 1.


The winner will receive a Supporting Membership for a year,

and their photo will be on the forum home page as the winner for the month of October.

One official entry per person, but you can add as many Just for Fun entries as you want!

Please make sure to specify which one is your official entry, and remember to follow all forum rules for safety, etc.


Please include your bird's name somewhere in your post.

Okay, one of Tucker's "things." Maybe not exactly a trick, but it's one of the things he does. And of course, Tucker cuteness is always a treat for me. My upside down boy... :)

Tee hee, nice one! But at the end there Tucker's looking at you all kinda "Aaaaawwww dad, that was a pretty neat trick. Surely it's worth more than one kiss? C'mon dad, I'm waiting!!" 😁

LOL, that definitely qualifies as a trick, and that sweet kiss at the end is such a treat:) I love me some Tucker!

Thank you - hope you can see the video now of Duffy & Rocky munching on their Jack O' Lanterns. Official Entry!
Yes, I can see it now and I love it! Duffy and Rocky are sure enjoying their pumpkin, and the way they are each taking turns is so sweet:)
