Myrtle has enhanced her flying and is able to hit the top of my head when she goes by (deliberatly). If I put my hand up she will navigate around it. I was standing in the doorway this morning when she wanted to go through. She ducked under my arm and went on.
Myrtle crashed into the side of my head. She usually does a parrot call as she goes through doorways. It is sort of like "I'm coming through get out of my way". She forgot to this time and hit me on the side of the head. She didn't get hurt and kept flying but it scared the boogers out of me.
My little Polarn seems to have trouble seeing black walls from time o time... I got the wall above my bed painted black currently, and this is the only place he has crashed so far and a couple of times too.... he kinda realizes there is a wall there to late and tries to turn up but he always flies with the belly into the wall then drops down into the bed.... I am considering painting the wall in a different color, altho he has only been here little more than a week and crashed twice... but not in the past 5. days ... so them 3 times he did crash into that wall was all during the first 4 days... so not sure if he has learnt there is a wall there.
However he for some reason dont like to fly off the bed... so thats one of the few times i actually does step up... even if it is just until I lift him up a couple of inches then he flies again. but if i keep my hand down against the bed he will stand on it and kinda wait for me to lift it... when i figured this i started to make him jump down on the floor and start his flight on his own instead, becouse I dont want to learn him that stepping up means fly around.
