flighted recall to a bell?

Postby spiral » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:21 pm

Hi eveyone
My parrot flew to me 4 times consecutively when i rang a tiny quiet bell, that shed never heard before. I would like to possitively reinforce this response.
Since she seems to like this small bell, a heck of a lot.

I think its sound is similar to dried chillies being shaken in her metal food bowl. I do this to recall her if she is in a place i cant reach. i am restricted in the different ways i can recall her because of my disability. i cannot stand up without holding onto something.

i do everything with postive reifourcement and routine. Can i use the bell as a bridging mechanism?

As I see it, and im not any expert, th biggest provlem tou can have is that you will have to walk with this bell avery time you want to recall your bird cuz u cant do the noise with yous mouth :) but beside that i cant see why not.
