When we were still out West, the dry treeless desert environment helped me be confident about taking the Rickeybird outside, but...
Here in the verdant, tree-rich "Forest City" of Cleveland... with
a nearby nesting American Kestrel pair and an occasional Bald Eagle sighting... nope!
But I love to watch y'all's videos!

It's the same one. I don't take more than 2 birds go hiking. Not easy to keep the leashes not to get tangled.

Our eagles are fish eating eagles. Sightings are quite rare in my area. They are found mainly at sea sides.

There are some eagles and such here that do eat fish at least part of the time but most of them here will eat mice, rabbits other birds, the neighbors cat or small dog or just about any other animal that they can carry off after the initial strike. Here in the area that I live in they have spent at least 20 years reintroducing the Peregrine falcon back into the wild bird population. There is no parrot alive that can fly faster or able to out maneuver this bird of prey, making outside parrots at huge risk and this alone accounts for my aversion to free flying any of my birds and makes me have to be very aware of what else in in the skies when I do take them outside.
