Something I think people may confuse for dominance is the fact that parrots just prefer to sit higher in general which doesn't necessarily interpret as dominance. If a parrot is on the floor or low table, it is likely to fly up to you if called just to be higher. However, if a parrot is happily sitting up on a fan, cabinet, etc... it's harder to call it down to you. I don't think this is the parrot exhibiting its dominance over you, it's just naturally feels safer higher so going up is reinforcing but coming down isn't.

Love the birds and the tats! How are the birds adjusting to being home?
