Quick recall video

Postby Avialae » Wed Jan 18, 2012 6:43 am

Here's a video of Nova doing some short distance flighted recalls and an "advanced" (closing and opening the foot two times) wave.
I'm just in the processes of changing lighting equipment and making some adjustments to the cage, so you'll have to excuse the poor light and general shabbyness. :-)

She has also learned how to spin, give kisses (I try to teach it as a trick where they are to touch my lips with the top side of the upper mandible, this way them seem less interested in poking around in peoples mouths later on...) and has a very good and generalized step up. Of course she's also target trained. :-)
I'm really, really pleased considering she was too terrified to even let anyone get near her when i got her home a little over a month ago. She's a parent fed Jardines, around 6 months old now.
That's the wonders of positive reinforcement training right there. :-)

He seems very well trained - he has no hesitation and comes the second you call him :D
On an unrelated note, I'm surprised (and glad) that links are allowed to be posted on the forum :thumbsup:
Good job. Have you thought about taking it outdoors yet?
