Update on the experience with my friend's unfriendly bird.
Wow. I haven't been here in a LONG time.
For those who don't remember, I been pet sitting my friend's flock on multiple occasion in order to gain REAL bird experience as well as my friend travels to Ohio a lot in visit her family.
One of her five parrots, one of them, a rainbow lory, really hated me. Threat displays and biting and all. Months of working with her, I manage turn from threat to curiosity and could touch through the bars without any bites.
However today...I made my biggest milestone with her. I opened her cage, told her to step up...and the lory did it without biting me!! She looked like she was excited to play with me. We played a quick whistling game with each other. She perched on my fingers without a care in the world.
I AM SO HAPPY!!!
