She is adorable. Budgies really know what they do & do not prefer. No way you could call them indecisive.

A little update. This may be progress. Biz lets me get very close to him when I'm trying to teach him to talk. I get very close to his face, & when I pull back or take him away, he leans in closer as if to say " no, don't stop... this is fun. " ....He still doesn't talk, however he does make faint and mumbly human sounds.

I guess the progress here is that Biz seems to enjoy and be entertained by the training.

He's not a natural at talking, but I know if he didn't like the training he would fly off my hand very quickly. He doesn't stick around if he's not interested.

Just a little update. I continue to be amused by how much fun Biz thinks this is. A lot of times when he first jumps on my finger, he will immediately lean in towards my face as if to say "let's do more of that fun talking game." He really does seem to think of it as a game.

That said, he is still not good at it. And that is just as funny if he actually could talk well. I hear him practicing and it's really cute, but he's just not a natural at all. I continue to hear him make new sounds, but that's about it.

Every now and then I hear his words in there (mostly "pretty bird" is what he leans on) but it remains mumbly. I try other words but he's not getting those.
The other day I was singing "pretty bird" from across the room to keep teaching him and he flew over to my hand.

I continue to be amazed at how smart budgies are, & the ability for them to bond with humans. (Not all will of course, given the individual personality) ... but the degree to which they're capable of it is pretty amazing.

One day Biz may improve on his talking and surprise me, but I'm glad it's just a fun game. In the beginning it felt like work. I probably started too soon because I thought that's what you do. Not necessarily I think. I have learned a lot with my first bird.

An update... Biz continues to work on talking and continues to not be very good at it. (Which is kind of funny.) I hear him continue to practice. Yesterday I heard him say "pretty pretty pretty" which is a change because all he's been saying is a fairly indiscernible "pretty bird".

I've been saying "pretty pretty pretty bird" repeatedly so he picked that up.

He loves the talking training and insists on doing it. I can tell when he wants to. If I try to quit before he's done.... he won't go back in his cage and will crawl up my hand when I try to put him back in.

Talking training still equals holding him as close to my mouth has possible (without touching him) to teach him the words.

He thinks that's a blast. I feel a bit silly sometimes ... but it's amusing how much he enjoys it.

And then he chirps all day.

Today Biz was saying "pretty pretty pretty" during President Obama's final press conference. I turned the tv off to capture some video, but Biz stopped. He likes to talk & chirp "along with" noise in the background. So I had to turn the tv back on.

Here he is saying "Pretty Pretty Pretty" as President Obama talks about serious issues:

Awww.....thanks! He was tired here too. It's funny how he practices his talking when he is going off to sleep. ....Will be interesting to see if his diction gets any better, or if he's always going to be a "soft talking mumbler." ; ) Thanks for watching.

I can definitely hear his speaking talent coming through! Keep up the good work Blue!

Reggie was listening to Biz and has become very chatty. He really likes your Biz ahaha! I think we've got a friendship going on!

Awww.... that is too cute. Biz also loves hearing Talk Budgies birds. He will fly over to my computer and look at me and his eyes get really big. It's funny.

It will be interesting to see if his speech gets more clear over time. He loves the training, & asks for it.... but some days he doesn't practice his talking very much. Today for example he is all chirps. He will start non-stop chirping early sometimes and never stop until the afternoon. He's a bit of a show-off.
