This is the very 1st place I started recall training with Kilaya. Getting Kilaya to fly here and there at this place is very easy.

This is another training ground for Kilaya. He knows all his routines. We hike here 4 times a week.

She has such beautiful feathers!

I bought a harness for my CAG but never put it on him. He freaked out every time he saw it and about lost his mind when I moved it closer to him. I tried for several months and just said to heck with it. There were so many conflicting opinions on putting a harness on a bird and because he was freaking out I just put it away and didn't give it a second thought until seeing this. I'd be happy just to take him outside with me (outside of his travel cage) and not worry as much about him flying away. If I could ever get him to do recall like that it would be amazing. I think he would love to be able to fly like that. But maybe that's me putting my feelings on him...however you want to see it lol.

I loved seeing the videos too, they made me smile after a truly craptastic day.

There are some videos on youtube teaching how to put the harness on a parrot. I am lucky than most because I was able to buy a 1 month old baby. It makes training much easier.
