I am so glad that Truman's expedition came to a happy end and that he is now home and all is well in the abode of the parrot wizard.

I have not visited here for a long time. I came to know Truman was missing from my facebook friend, Ronen. I am happy that you got him back. :thumbsup:

The Real Macaw Parrot Club members are so happy to hear of Truman's safe return. We were all praying for a good outcome, as well as, constantly looking out our windows for Truman!
Hope to see both of you soon!

I'm so glad to hear that Truman made it back home safely!

If in the future you do wish to further explore the idea of free (untethered flight) with any of your parrots - though Santina is the safest option due to her size and bright colors - I would like to suggest you contact Chris Biro. I've been following him for a while. He has been free flying parrots for over 24 years. He takes a scientific approach and has done it successfully with many birds.

Here is his website: http://www.libertywings.com
He also has a yahoo group for discussing free flight: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Freeflight/info

Again, so happy to hear about Truman's safe return!!

Michael I don't know how you survived.
The day the wind caught the storm door and blew Myrtle off my shoulder I thought I would die. The wind threw her into the middle of the yard and then changed and blew her into my neighbors yard. If she had been clipped the wind would have taken her away. Instead she managed to grab the top twig of a very tall tree. She kept calling me for hours until a young man on our street came to help. It seemed like days.
Her learning words instead of just repeating what I said paid off. When he reached for her she told him no. I was able to tell her that he was okay and for her to go to him and she did.

I saw the youtube update and freaked the f&^% out. THANK GOD you found Truman, Michael!

I can COMPLTELY empathize as to what you went through, and how you felt. Fortunately for you, you had a happy ending.

This all hits too close to home when I lost Tiki. I am so glad you have him home and safe, the sweet little guy. I hope this doesn't happen again. Please be more careful, Michael. *hugs*
