Smile Slow motion aviary birds + Raptors [videos]

Thought I would share some of the slow motion videos I've been messing about with a week or so ago on my new phone haha

IN BEFORE ANYBODY COMMENTS ON MY HOUSING OF DIFFERENT SPECIES!

I have kept cockatiels, budgies and red fronted kakarikis together for years with no issues what so ever. I also decided in the last year or so that I would like my Fischer's, black cheeked and black masked lovebirds to join the aviary too. I have stupidly mixed peach faced with my other birds before and they were bullies and so I moved them on but the 'eye ring' species are considerably more gentle and less territorial than their cousins. So no need to comment, more than happy with how things have been going







And a little bit of bonus, Chalkie and Bandit!







Enjoy!

EDIT: I know that a couple of the more vertical clips are cut down so you can't see everything, sorry about that!

Those clips are amazing, I love seeing the healthy beautiful feathers in actual flight of all your birds! Thanks for sharing them.

Thank you!

I used to clip my birds (my companion birds) because I was naive and listened to the 'they need to be clipped or else they aren't safe' rubbish. Once I learned how to easily teach recall and actually build a relationship created by mutual respect I never wanted to clip again and haven't since. They're a creature designed to fly, not be stuck in a 5 foot cage in someone's living room and come out like a lap dog. That mutual respect is key. Clipping a bird and forcing it to stay with you because it physically can't leave is only detrimental to any relationship. They are stunning in flight

I have a few more I recently took of Bandit

Bandit is stunning in flight, such a beautiful bird (I cringed at the birds nails when he landed on your arm/hand)

These video clips are gorgeous. Flying birds are like angels. It's their destiny to fly.

He really is, he just won't leave me alone haha! His talons come quite sharp and do cut me up a lot but if I wear a glove he won't come anywhere near me. I think it's because I've been flying him since he was about 8 weeks old that he knows how to be gentle most of the time. He doesn't even need food for recall either, though I do reward him when flying properly. In the aviary I'm usually just checking him over, cleaning or putting food in and he won't get off haha. Now on the other hand I'd never not wear a glove with my Harris' hawk because the strength in his feet is unreal!

Thank you! I agree. I'm sure there are some legalities, if not a lot of morals, behind clipping a raptor (you cannot do it) so why is it allowed to be done for parrots? Some may argue that their bird may fly away but then it is our duty to provide a safe environment and reinforce recall training. They may also argue that because parrots can climb that makes it okay. Other birds cannot. I recently saw somebody with doves that are clipped and I considered how cruel it was!
