Michael, wanted to offer my feedback of your entire website here - your Trained Parrot Blog is fantastic. I have learned so much from your articles. I've read through nearly all of them, many even before I joined as a member. And the videos interspersed with them are so helpful too. sometimes they don't work anymore, but I am usually able to find the same video directly on the youtube site when I enter the name of the video in the search box.
thanks for keeping the blog and the forum going, its really great work you've done with this entire site and your dedication to parrots overall. I appreciate this forum and blog because its the only one I have been able to find which has as its grounding philosophy that parrots SHOULD be kept flighted. I fully agree with this position, and am simply fed up with parrot "experts", vets, breeders, and shops saying that its a "choice" or a "preference", or most absurdly, a "safety" thing. So I'm grateful for the committed stance you've taken on this issue.
You have done such a fine job with your birds. My birds and I are learning a lot every day from this website. Thanks again!
