Ziggy's tricks!

Ziggy has been learning tricks for a couple of weeks now.

She learns a new trick within days, sometimes hours! She is exceptionally good at not getting bored, she manages to stay alert for almost an hour.

She absolutely loves being watched by people, so tricks are her favourtie way of getting attention (typical parrot!)

She know how to 'shake hands' , 'turn around', 'flip', and she's starting to get the hang of 'flap your wings!'

Ziggy still needs visual clues to help her along, so thats why in the videos I'm waving my hands around and putting them under the perch.

Sorry about the bad sound quality, flip sounds like dip and it's quite fuzzy, but you get the idea


In this one she's a bit reluctant to perform for the camera, and then finds a bit of carrot on the perch, but she manages to turn around and flip

Ziggy decides to be difficult and not do the right tricks!

When I ask her to shake hands she often licks my fingers to make sure I haven't left any carrot on them!

Wow! She learns fast, doesn't she?

You two seem to have a great relationship.
