. I am obsessed with taking birdie pics nowadays. Time to dust off the digital camera that I forgot how to use lol. This motorola phone camera is actually ok and does take crisp clear pics (when it decides to focus properly) but the shutter speed is so slow it's hard to capture subjects such as birds without it being blurry. Then the iPad camera forget it, it's really bad quality.
Griffin is always up to something. It's interesting how he's a related species to Robin (both in the genus of Poicephalus parrots) but they have such different personalities and temperaments. That's more individual though, than species. When Griffin started to grow up I said "ohhh no... we have trouble!"
Lately, I've started flying Griffin around the room first thing when he comes out of the cage. Hopefully he will get in the routine and start doing it automatically. I'm teaching him the word "fly". Funny but he goes inside his cage after, thinking it's time to go in
. It burns off a ton of pent up energy in him, and stops him from the aerial attacks on my head and Raven! I'm so glad I figured that one out! That's what the boy needs, to fly more. He's too full of hormones and energy. Now that I've gotten his phobic disorder he has is down to a minimum (took about a year working with him which was so not
fun), I'm also planning to start target training him.
I was just remembering... When Griffin was very young, he was actually "friends" with my late budgie Twigs. As soon as I saw his behavior changing, Twigs cage was moved to a different part of the house. Looking back, I'd never put a budgie near a mature parrot again.
