I forgot how quickly this thread moves lol
Copper, didn't Dante used to be yours? By the way, I saw your video of Rosie recalling. She looked awesome! I can never get over how beautiful she is in flight.
Yup, Dante is the cockatiel I found while in San Fransisco but couldn't keep him because he was so loud. He's also happier with my friend, she has another cockatiel and it's good for him to have another bird to talk to from across the room. It's fun having him here, but I'm going to bring him home soon. I taught him how to be better about touching, and to put his wings up :)
Yay! I'm glad you saw it. I was so proud of her for flying when I called her. Like 40 minutes ago I had her sitting on a chair and my sister, step dad, and one niece were standing in the kitchen between us and she wanted to fly to me so bad. I came closer and called her and she flew to me right away :D
After I finished the dishes, by now it was only me and Rosie, I had to go run and close the french doors(about 25" away). So I opened the screen, and right when I did that I heard her take off so I quickly closed them with me already outside. I felt bad because I had set her up for failure, she was so excited to fly to me but for her safety I had to separate us. She flew into the dining room, circled around looking for me, then flew back into the kitchen and landed on the sink out of breath. After she landed I quickly closed the french doors and ran to her to tell her she was a very good girl. It's great that she came looking for me, but I was pained to know I wasn't there for her to land on and to get praise.
