I kept ending up at this forum through various google searches. Also, someone at Caique Forum suggested I check out this site. Good job!

I was concidering getting a budgie a couple of months ago, and then I did some internet research to see if it was something I thought I should do, and I stumbled upon Michaels Youtube videos, which lead me to trainedparots.com, which eventually lead me here. Now I have my little Pixie, and I couldn't be happier.

I want a bird so I had been doing lots of searches on the internet for info on training birds and videos of different kinds of birds doing tricks and interacting with their owners. I found the BirdTricks youtube channel about the same time I was still not sure what bird I wanted but mostly thinking about a budgie. One of Duke's training videos was on the sidebar of one of BirdTricks's videos. I watched it and thought it just made SO much sense and checked out the rest of your channel.

Then I was reading the BirdTricks blog and saw you had made a post about some training technique and I remembered you from your videos. So I found your channel again, got the link to your website, poked around, and found this forum. I love how helpful and friendly everybody is, so I joined and I plan on sticking around! :thumbsup:

I was looking for someone to help me with adding another Amazon friend for Rambo. I went into the thread for rescue. Capt helped me a lot as well as many others giving me advice and warnings.

Well for me I wanted to join because this forum has a great deal of information. I enjoy reading and learning as well as smiling really big when I get to see all the wonderful pictures and home made toys.
I haven't quite figure how to re-size my pic yet but I will keep working on it. It would be nice to have it but I am so interested in all the posts I spend most of my time reading as well as posting questions and opinions.

Thanks to everyone here that makes this forum interesting and informative. :)

This is by far the most informative forum I've come across; the videos are an incredible resource. I have come across many forums when seeking info (bit of a research fanatic) but aside from a yahoo group, this is the only one I've joined. I certainly feel I can trust the info/advice on here & you folks don't tire of me prattling on about my parrot ;)

I was on YouTube watching parrot videos and came across yours. I thought kili :senegal: was pretty amazing, so is Truman but when I first found your YouTube channel you didn't have him. Ever since then I wanted a bird so I brought a cokatiel and he is doing great in training. :greycockatiel:
