Well, actually Marley is clipped now. Because of the weather so he can go outside with me. But when I learned him these tricks, he could fly.
I just make the trainingsessions very interesting for my bird. Use whatever you need for your bird to hold his attention. If your bird won't sit still, you mabye be learning him the trick to slow. And then he gets bored. You must adjust to your bird and try to keep his attention.
Look in what kind of mood your bird is. Sometimes Marley is in a cuddly mood, and then I use that as a reward.
Sorry for my crappy english, I hope you understand me

Okay, watched the vids. I gotta say you're good! I loved your little budgie spinning. That was so adorable. And I really loved your conure rolling over. It made me chuckle hehehe

the trick to training is positive reinforcement, and lots of showing them the behavior over and over.
I have the same training toys from Fun-Max as in the video (training bank box level 1) which if you are in the USA you can order from drsfostersmith.com among other places.

I am just starting some of this with Hector
