    Read, watch, and train to your heart's content but when the time comes remember that getting on a bike is you against the universe. Literally everything except your brain is biased towards the bike falling down with you on it. Every bird, every leaf, every spec of sand, every car. No one can teach you personal preservation, think about things like you only get one chance, because is in fact the case. After that it's smooth sailing.

    you can spam fire the mortar from the bird's eye view. I play on PS4 and I always get a shit ton of mortar kills on maps like Argonne Forest. There honestly shouldn't be a bird's eye view for the mortar, only for things like the big gun on the train or the cannons on the battleship. The mortar would be fine if they: A. Remove bird's eye view B. Increase the time between firing

    I'd create a safe, comfortable migration system for birds! Instead of flying to migrate, the birds could hitch a ride on the Bird Train and receive snacks, a warm place to sleep, as well as a sticker to show off to their friends!

    Base Camp Tokyo, The B pump in Ogikubo, and Fish and Bird are all really nice gyms. B-pump Ogikubo has a full blown competition wall that they switch up every 1-2 months. If you want to get outside Mitake is only 90 minutes from Shinjuku on the train, and has 3 of Japans classic boulder problems. You can rent a crash pad for 1000 yen from a shop near Mitake station.

    Uhmmm... It depends on the bird's intelligence and the will to train him, I guess. I'd say all parrots are capable of it, and probably other birds too, it just takes a little bit of work. Mind you, Pixel still has little accidents sometimes, it can't be perfect, but it's still a lot more manageable. :) I'd say most birds, yeah, if you work with them.

  • Jonathan Gottlieb Reply

    Umm, that bird understood EXACTLY what it was doing. Estimate a waiting spot, wait for the train to slow down, follow to the stopping point, make sure nobody cuts in front of you, assertively climb on board, find a quiet place to sit and settle in. The bird is better at riding mass transit than 50%+ of humans.

  • Hillary Jacobs Reply

    Seriously, I know birds are smart, but how do they train this thing so well that it can commiserate with a stadium of over 60,000 potential fatal threats (from a bird's perspective of humans in nature), without ever freaking out on someone's face? That's a very, very impressive bird.

  • Princess Hane Reply

    I completely agree with you. Every time I walk past them (or the one particular patch on the path to the train station that is littered with bird shit), I have a sudden image in my head of using slingshots to shoot at them and hopefully kill a few. So far I haven't acted on that fantasy yet.

    I had Early Bird for a while because I like to play in the train on my way to work at around 8AM, but I got fed up with seeing all my flowers go brown, so I changed it to Beautiful Town.

    They've been doing momma bird/baby bird shots, what if they did a train of momma birds. So in a line of five it goes through everyone's mouth until the last person gets the shot. That person is then out. Then number four takes it after passing through 1-3, and so on and so forth.

    The train horn did just sound off, could be what scared the bird. And there are definitely birds dumb enough to do that, but I've seen pudge on get hit by a car going 70mph on the highway and there was no blood spray like this. So idk. This is a tough one.

    Leilua wasn't able to train for day 1 which was a key thing for Mal. I suspect Bird was the same since he did a number on his elbow in the GF.

    It's a greyish song-bird. Some people train them to "hu" on a finger point. Means they can be a like a musical conductor and make the bird hu whenever they want. Cool af. Though might not be the correct bird, cos I might intepret your hus as another melody.

    I had an extremely vivid dream through out my childhood where I would get lost under my bed and Big Bird would ride around on a small train trying to run me over, while Elmo would try and push me in front of him.

  • Marquise Schmidt Reply

    What's actually happening here? Is the bird actually getting on the train because it wants to go to another station? How would it have learned that the train can take it places? Is it a genius bird?

    I'm skeptical about everything but I don't think there's any way of denying this unless you suggest the people in the video are actors. That's out the window as an explanation for me because there are hardly any cuts in the video, and what they're saying is pretty clear cut, and the wording they use (bird dogging) is used in the Podesta emails. The Twitter accounts for these people show they're always on the ground at protests too, so they're definitely a part of something. You've got them saying in plain english that they put people in places, train them to do a certain thing, instigate certain things. The guy even straight up said 'Chicago was us'. I'd be skeptical if it was just an audio recording, but they're on video saying these things themselves, and you can google their names to see if it's them or not. If it's fake it's a ridiculously good fake for someone who is apparently shit at making fake videos.

    In my experience, it's not worth it. Yes, you can train them out of it - to some extent. This is done via either carrying them around, lying them down and the ground and roughing them up, and overall irritating them; or, alternatively, scaring the absolute hell out of them. I prefer this method - done correctly, I spend perhaps 20 minutes on the bird, instead of hours over the course of weeks or months. However, you can never trust them again. They may up and begin attacking you again some day. Even if they are taught you are the alpha, they are likely to go after anyone who they do not recognize or respect, so it's not ideal to let guests in the yard. The majority are especially aggressive towards kids and shorter people (it's not fun trying to calm down the parent of a four year old who was just knocked over and repeatedly kicked in the face by a five pound bird). Life is too short to keep a bad rooster.

    If there is a motor control issue which constantly strains your QL, I wouldn't see just doing one exercise (bicycling) in this case as being a cure all. The core needs to be taxed in a multitude of ways in order to learn to stabilise the pelvis, Lower back, Thorax and to have it all work together efficiently when performing different movements. Yea based on the description its a bit tough to pickout the aggravator. But you definitely need to determine what irritates it the most and remove the stimulus. If its work, you could start off your work day fine and then add a brace about half way as a starting point to see if it avoids irritation and then wean yourself off of it as your train your core more. As far as the training goes. Start with stuart Mcgill's Big 3. Curl Up, Side Plank, and Bird dog and look up the progressions on those as you feel yourself getting stronger with them.

    Oh my god, the logistics. I forgot about that. Who has time to train a bird to travel between here and Netherlands to carry the message that Bob Van Something has agreed to bring a full container truck of alcohol with him? Once the bird arrives (hopefully before the plane and Bob do), the friend has to go to the forest, cut down a tree, produce some paper and make some ink and then write "bob Van Something" on the paper and hold it up at the arrival terminal. And the possibilities of sending dangerous liquids in a small bottle of alcohol. Someone mentioned liquid cocaine. What a brilliant idea for drug dealers. They can send millions of bottles of drugs like that for free. Or liquid nuclear material. Just pour some neon green shit into a bottle and hand it to an idiot like me who will blindly carry it for you.

    Brandon completely ignores Freight Train's comment as if he knew the leadership was not switched as it was Brandon who saved him "Blue Bird?.... Oh! from that meeting we had that Yuki organised a while ago that i completely forgot even happened. Sorry I couldn't recognise your voice, there wasn't much clue with the whole mask swap thing going on." Brandon looks around a bit again and asks "Well, as much as kicking Yuki's arse, I'd like to preoccupy us with some kicking of the arse towards other recipients. These whitecoat arseholes seem to be enjoying themselves a little too much..." Brandon returns his gaze to Amaya. "By the way, what was your kagune again.

    Ashmor looked at Myrrha, flabbergasted. "You've never flown on a Crackos!? Forget Mastiff! We're gonna go catch one, so you can learn! It's the best!" He jumped off of his bird, and lead him by the beak, beckoning Myrrha to follow him. "Come on, mum! We'll find one by the coast, for sure!" ___ Heletilla smiled, knowingly. "You are so kind, sometimes your fear of hurting someone hinders your training. That is nothing to be ashamed of. In fact, you should take pride in it. And, as for your sphere... I can teach you. You know how you have blood coursing through your veins, muscles flexing and relaxing and adrenaline rushing through your body as you train? That, that is life. At your whim, you can make any of those change, to what you desire it to be"

    I think the point is it's not to me to define. I matter (and we all do) to many people to levels to which it is not for me to define. My opinion of my own value is distorted by my ego and self-centered mind, which generally sucks and says I suck. The truth is, we all matter to much more than we are capable of understanding. I don't know what I could do in 3 months that could drastically effect someone else's life. Hell, I could have done things that did just that without even knowing. The mere smile given to someone on a train, or the flip of a bird in traffic can matter in ways that we can't comprehend from within our tiny self-centered minds. /rant over

    Ain't that the truth. My dogs are transparent about being very smart about what and why they do things - makes it easier to train them, but I'm still terrible. Two biggest things I need to work with them on is 1: don't chase the cats or torment the rabbits. 2: always come when I call, not just when they feel like it. SO keeps dreaming about taking the dogs walking in the woods off leash and I'm like are you NUTs?! Those dogs would be gone in a heartbeat after a squirrel, rabbit or bird.

  • Consuelo Toy Reply

    I've been playing some train simulators recently and based on what they saw i'm guessing it went something along the lines of. >Got to slow down for the 15 mph zone up here. >Oh crap going too slow, this is going to take forever, let's just give this a couple notches for a sec to get this moving again. >Oh look at that bird over there. hey what are they doing. >Omg i'm going way to fast shit what should i do? >Fuck. emergency brake. bang. crash. The only other scenario would be something extremely complicated like the throttle took off unexpectedly or he had some medical thing happen and accidentally hit the throttle and then stopped having the thing happen and hit the e brake and then was totally fine afterwards.

    I went to a bird display once where they have a falconer or whatever do things with all the birds and one of the things he pointed out is that birds don't like flying. To a human we think it would be amazing to fly around without a care in the world, but to a bird flying is like running, yeah they can do it but it's tiring. That's why when you train them you need to make them work hard for their food, because the bird wants to do the minimum amount of flying required to get whatever food is on offer. To prove this point some vultures took off and didn't come back. Eventually he went looking for them and they found a carcass of a baby deer and gorged themselves on that instead of doing tricks for him and then basically didn't give a fuck about what he wanted them to do.

    I usually try to base it on the speed and cost of skills and what I enjoy. Skills like Prayer, Herblore, and Construction can be costly, but very high exp when you can train them. Skills like RC, Slayer, Agility, and Mining are all fairly slow skills. Slayer is usually more enjoyable and afkable than the others. Mining is pretty slow, but MLM is semi-afk and profits decently. Agility is faster than RC but less profit at higher levels. As for Hunter, the short version is you set a trap, wait for something to walk in it, check the trap, and reset. Bird Snares, Deadfall, Net Traps, and Box Traps are usually good exp, with Salamanders and Chinchompas being good. There is also the Monkey Hunting after MM2, which I hear is good.

    Lifting the foot is a GOOD sign it means he wants to be with you. If he lands on your back and stays peaceful it means He is a bit afraid of hands/arms but he wants to be on you. Young macaws like to be higher on you like on your shoulder it makes them feel safe away from the scary fingers. Some are afraid of fingers and hands you just have to get him used to being handled. Offer arm with fingers folded into a fist back of hand toward bird. Go to utube and look on videos on how to train a young bird. Takes things slow and calmly NO YELLING. They go thru the terrible twos just like human kids. With proper training they greatly improve their behavior.

    Got to train as a DJ at my college station this morning again! I had a lot more decisions this time, picked more music and talked on air more. I played some Andrew Bird, Nada Surf, Spoon, Neon Indian, CHVRCHES, Two Door Cinema Club, The Strokes, The XX and Beach House (also some local stuff I'm required to play and some music I honestly didn't know). The host training me closed with Radiohead and not Mumford and Sons this time which was nice. Also, I am on a Beach House binge and have been taking walks around my campus late at night listening to Bloom which is a beautiful experience.

    You're warm :) Like most reptiles, heat encourages the digestive process for Cresteds. They digest fine at room temp, but when their little bellies hit your nice warm skin, it tends to speed it up a bit. I have a male who does the same thing, every freaking time, no matter how long it has been since he last ate. My Leachies are *notorious* for it, and nothing is worse than what comes out of those things! Unfortunately you can't "train" a gecko like you would a bird, so it's just something to be aware of. Generally you can tell when they're about to go, so if you're ready, you can hold him over something and carry on with handling knowing that he's no longer loaded!

  • Madyson Stamm Reply

    So is it the friction on my feet standing in a train that causes me to accelerate to the same speed as the train? If I had a bird flying on a train and it started moving would it smack into the back wall before it itself accelerated?

  • Stefan Kling Reply

    Some birds need to be taught to play. Target train your bird, then make proximity and interaction with new toys part of a regular training routine. Click - treat on approach, then touching, then for longer periods. You can slowly adjust from treating every time to treating intermittently, because you want them to play with toys on their own when you aren't there to cue and reward. Do this with new toys, and watch your bird to see what types of toys he likes most to incorporate those elements into new toys (like shredding, certain foot toys, etc).

  • Dereck Herzog Reply

    Really depends on how tame you want it really - if you want it to come to you and favour you then you need to spend a lot of time with it. If you can't commit enough time to it then you will need another cockatiel to keep it company - if this is the case then it won't be as tame as a solo cockatiel :) You would also want to keep it somewhere you go often, like any animal, exposure is important. If you stay in your room a lot, the cage might need to be inside sometimes to be near you (or at least when you first begin to tame it). Bird can use the bathroom 5+ times an hour and they don't control it really - you can't toilet train them unfortunately.

    Benadryl is deadly to cats, I know because my cat has allergy/sinus issues. I do highly advise to read cat vs cat. You should look into working on spending the energy, Niko sounds like a very active cat like Bengals and Abyssinians though some those owners have basically a hamster wheel for their cat and use toys like da-bird toy. Some of them even train them to walk on a leash. If you can do it a cat patio is nice way to give him back some outside enjoyment he was use to. Jackson Galaxy has a lot of youtube videos that might help.

    I'm late to the party so this will probably be buried. I worked at the happiest place in California and was working the pirate's ride. I once had a customer ask me where the pirate's ride was... Mind you I'm standing in front of it, dressed like a pirate. At the time I was a bit of a jackass and so I looked up at the sign and pointed... She didn't get the hint so I looked at her looked at the sign and looked at her again. Nothing. So I pointed her to the train and saif if you get on the train and get off on the 4th stop it will be on your right. (4th stop would be a circle taking you right back here.) As I got my break she got off the train just in time to flip me the bird.

    > and even litter box trained. This is what I was going to ask about. I saw you mention a bird diaper and I had no idea there were birds you couldn't train to only poop on the stand.

    Look up the palomacy website they have some good info on pigeon pants. As long as you get a good one and slowly train the bird, they really don't mind and see that it lets them have more freedom. They can still fly and have full motion.

    At a previous company, I worked from home a lot. I used to put my calls on speakerphone and then play WAVs out of my laptop when I was on conf calls with large-ish audiences. Random things. Cho-cho train horns. Bird mating calls. Lion roars. Never more than 2-3 times per hour call. People would go nuts because no one knew what was going on. For reference, standard phone conf calls so no indicator as to "current speaker" like you get today. Fun times. Got my boss doing it too. Sometimes both of us on the same call.

    Its very possible they don't have that problem solving ability. Since their whiskers tell the brain to back up, and add in they are probably in a state of "flight", its very possible their brain can't rationalize that type of problem solving ability. It seems silly to us because we have evolved with a great capacity for problem solving. On top of that we have an education system to help train our brains for even greater problem solving. Some animals just simply don't have those capacities. Their brains have evolved for other things and more focused problem solving such as how to catch a mouse or bird, etc.

    And then that guy put it on a hobo saying 'keep warm,' and the hobo blew his nose on the sleeve and then said 'THIS IS GAY' and threw it onto some train tracks, which then a freight train just destroyed and shredded. Then a bird came down, pecked at some of the fabric left over, and then choked to death on it. And while in its death spasms, it rolled over to Fez's shoe and expelled its waste and intestines all over with the loudest, bloodiest fart ever heard by anybody.

    Definitely a fast format. You're not likely going to draft sufficient removal/control to kill all of their creatures or fabricated crap. Flyers are nasty, green and red energy beaters are nasty. Vehicles are nasty, I only like the train (with trample) and the racecar. On Friday I managed top 8 with a green beater deck with splashes of red and white. Really amusing to have the little bird that gives you other stuff flying and you keep running a 5/3into their face each turn. Green has fantastic mana fixing with aether.

Apart from the last two assassins creed (which as you've said they recognized and are now trying to fix), they've put out some pretty great games in recent years, like splinter cell blacklist, ghost recon future soldier, rainbow six siege, and assassins creed 4. They also seem to be working on some cool stuff for vr, like star trek and that bird flight game, which I wouldn't be surprised to see panned for being too risk taking if a giant media conglomerate like vivendi swallowed them up.

    Birds poop on everywhere and everything. You can train them to poop in certain places, sure, but I personally have never met a bird that's potty trained. Mine poops everywhere. But what I consider worse is their messy food habits. Food gets flung everywhere. You'll be cleaning up messes off the floor, the cage, the walls, even the ceiling if you're unlucky enough. Also, some birds are very destructive. As in they'll chew wires, walls, doors, paper, books, chairs, etc if you don't provide them with enough stimulation/toys. Sometimes it happens regardless.

Watch videos on how to finger train them and get them to trust you. They are a fun little bird and they make a great companion. And they are domesticated. Thanks for the links.

    Beautiful pup OP. I'm not much of a bird hunter and I don't train gun dogs but I've had a lot of hunting dogs. Its more complicated than getting a dog use to noise. Its what the dog learns to associate with gunfire that's important. I keep puppies in the laundry room around washer and dryer noises, I carry them with me when I'm running equipment on the farm, and I carry a gun with me to get them use to the sight of a gun, but I never fire guns around my pups/dogs unless game is involved.

    Dont worry, there is an option on an FC stable to train your bird from the main menu. But if you are in the same apartment with a spouse / partner / friend it could be a pain in the butt to train eachother's birds as you will have to look through the list. The FC stable holds up to 512 birds, and I think each apartment only holds about that many people? So for all in tents and porpoises the apartment will probably function as a a large FC house with a bipunch of strangers.

    There should be fog at the top of the lift and when the train pulls into the station (it would spill out of the front engine). There are supposed to be 2 or 3 birds along the beginning section (the infamous bird on a stick). The waterfall usually works, but has been out at various times in the past. This is all my understanding, but I could be wrong on some things.

Normally it's just kids who come in who want to see the animals so I was glad to have a customer. I was wrong. This man marches up to the desk and begins to have a rant at me in that the parrot that we sold him is dead. I don't know what he was going on about, the parrot seemed quite content, flapping around and making plenty of noise. The biggest joke was that he bought it from the other branch in Ipswich. I told him to go there but he somehow caught the train from Bolton to Bolton! For his aristocratic feel he seemed to be a bit short on the intelligence. He probably read the ticket backwards and thought it sai Notlob or something.

    He couldn't get his tricycle into the car. I kept him from picking up a dead bird off the sidewalk. I wouldn't let him drag his stroller through my flower bed. I put the tracks on his train table back together after he destroyed them weeks ago. I didn't let him eat the peppermint he found with the plastic wrapper still on. And the big fundamental reason behind all this... He's two.

    Thanks for the cool ideas, but I think I'm not handy enough with tools to accomplish all that, hahaha! I got this little bird cage for now . I don't have a car, so I have to carry the cage around on the train and subway to pick it up from the owner, so it also can't be too big and heavy even if I'd like that. It's good to know that they'll still need direct supervision for sure with the little fence. I wonder if I could modify the fence, perhaps so there's an inner lip around the top so it's harder to climb out? I'm afraid they'll chew through cardboard, but maybe a cardboard lip on the metal fence will be a good combo. I loved to see the other playpen ideas too. I wasn't sure if 'rat play fences' were actually a thing or not when I bought it, haha.

    Actually, I kind of think that the down votes are because your attitude is nasty. I mean, sure the smithsonian, nature journal and i09 made some comments bout feral cats on islands having an affect on those eco systems. (neither of which apply to this cool cat) Plus if you want to get technical, let's hope you don't use plastic, cars, hairspray, oh or be a human. I don't think anyone is advocating that people should train their cats to hunt birds. But it doesn't make someone an irresponsible pet owner to take every precaution to make sure their BLIND CAT, who had never caught a bird before, was safe to enjoy the out doors. I feel that OP was pretty surprised the cat caught one in the first place. So let's cool it there, jugdy-pant.

    It's like she suddenly got this massive OCD impulse that if she doesn't get out immediately and tell you that she noticed your camera she won't be able to drive properly because her whole train of thought will be focused on that camera and how much she wants to tell you she noticed it. She seems like the type of person to hit someone with her car and tell the officer that she was distracted by a bird walking on the sidewalk and that she wasn't at fault because it was the birds fault for distracting her. It's scary to think people like this are allowed to drive. :s

    My grandfather's old bird gun. Found it in the attic and did a bit of research on it. Apparently people think the "humpback" design is ugly, and while i somewhat agree, this shotgun was on the forefront of affordable, semi-auto technology. Some military variants were made for troops in WW2 (mostly to train them to hit a moving target). Browning made the original auto 5 design and Savage expanded the market.

    It isn't really. I mean the birds receive some benefit from the fisherman. They probably get shelter, protection, and the fisherman ensure that they actually are fed even in lean times. However, this seems more like a forced works since the bird doesn't not eat the fish of its own volition. It has to be collared to prevent it from eating. The Honey Bird is more true mutualism. The bird helps the humans because it knows the humans will help the bird, either by accident or on purpose. I guess a similar relationship would be with dogs. Dogs will do almost anything you train them to do, in exchange they get shelter, protection and food.

    Why. Does it take a train back to "here" in the evening? It knows to get on. Does it know exactly where it wants to get off? Does it know that when it gets on?

    They can't swim nearly as well as retrieving breeds, they don't have a water repellant cost, they don't have soft mouths, not do they have a drive to be a companion hunter. They really just aren't anywhere near as good as the breeds that are commonly used. I've had labs that would retrieve teal on hunts as early as 5 months, and would retrieve dummies and bird wings from the day I brought them home (~8 weeks). I use labs and Goldens religiously, though within the next year I'll be getting a Chesapeake Bay Retriever to train under my current black lab and to try the breed out.

    Hello! I want to train my first 7 star today, but I'm not really sure who.

But I don't see the point of her having the extra skill points because currently she's at 2/5/5/5, and I rarely use her active. I mostly use her as a damage dealer as I mainly focused on her crit rate/damage. However, those extra skill points might come in handy for William or VB... Any tips on who should I pick? Thanks!

    I'm gonna use my throwaway on this one. My 97-year old grandmother died when she drove through a crossing gate right in front of a train. A lot of people, when they hear this story, ask if she did it on purpose. Almost certainly not - she was fit as a fiddle with a bit of short-term memory trouble; the theory is that she had a small stroke while driving and that was it. Then they wonder what the hell she was doing driving at that age. Good question, but my dad (her son) could NEVER get her to do anything she didn't want to, or vice versa. She was a tough old bird.

    I don't think there's a way to enforce this within the bounds of the game because people just pick their team based on whatever color or bird they like best, or what their friends are doing. I'm in Columbus and a solid chunk are Valor, presumably because our school colors are scarlet & gray. Overall, being in the minority is a good thing since you can more easily take down a gym than train one of your own to add your Pokemon to them. Sure, you may not hold them for long, but it comes with the territory.

  • Clemens Leffler Reply

    Not an expert, but I use them for my dog and they work great. He flushes so I encourage him to catch them on occasion. If you put them in a cage that is at least 4 feet tall they will become flight conditioned and are easy to flush. Especially after 36 weeks. The jumbo quail are a different story. Even if they try to fly my dog easily catches them. I would not train a pointer with a jumbo quail, but I wouldn't even hesitate on a smaller flight conditioned bird.

    This is totally normal and she has bonded with you. Birds call to each other when they can't see each other. If it is just a quick chirp and not nonstop screaming, this is instinctive and you should reply. If it's nonstop screaming, search this forum for tips on how to de-train screaming. I personally just take my bird with me everywhere, since it doesn't really bug me. He stays on my shoulder usually so he doesn't get into much trouble.

    It's going to suck, but you can do it. Stay busy, really. Be gentle to yourself. Don't beat yourself up about obsessive thoughts, it's an addiction. Anne Lamott said in her book, Bird by Bird, "Try looking at your mind as a wayward puppy that you are trying to paper train. You don't drop-kick a puppy into the neighbor's yard every time it piddles on the floor. You just keep bringing it back to the newspaper.”

    Not only have my bus prices gone up, the light rail construction has forced me to take a bus and train trip as the bus no longer goes in to town. Now instead of a single fare, I pay for two modes of transport. Why can't the system just charge based on distance/time regardless of changes to mode of transport? What's there point if a smart card system if it's not smart enough to do that? Now I just buy discounted secure parking credits and pre-book early bird parking. I get to work quicker (I live 10 minutes from the CBD by car, but 40 minutes by bus/train) and it only costs me fractionally more. Fuck 'em.

  • Trudie Schowalter Reply

    my bird can be very noisy. I find whistling to him helps us bond.... but most importantly it interrupts him. When we keeps squawking, and won't stop and it's driving me crazy, I take him out of the cage and let him run around the floor. This kinda dumbfounds him and he doesn't make sound. After a while I put him back in and by that time he's lost his train of thought. Also, I'll put him on my shoulder...a distraction really helps, and tapping the cage or snapping at them doesn't fix the problem, but if you remove them from their frame of mind, they tend to get preoccupied with something else.

  • Janick Schaden Reply

    Honestly, don't train to poop. I've seen a few incidents where the bird didn't know what to do if not given the command. They get constipated. Not fun. Now funny you should mention having a post to go. Most parrots will do this. Instinctually, most do not poop where they sleep. In our case, their cage. Poop below a tree tells a predator where they are sleeping. So they usually want to fly to a different spot before going. So when you have multiple t-stands and play gyms around the house, they will tend to go there on their own.

    Great advice! I'll NEVER recommend a cockatoo for anyone unless they are absolutely sure they can put up with it. they naturally scream bloody murder every morning and every night. If you read up on them and decide you want one, please consider adopting from a bird shelter. They end up in shelters more than any other parrot. They're usually the most abused parrots at shelters because they scream so much and you can't really train them not too. Some individuals might not be as loud, but every single one my local parrot reduce has come across have been screamers

    I have not been consistent about my recall training. One of them does consistently come when called, but I don't think I'd rely on that training working out for me in an emergency. But yes absolutely you can successfully train a bird to recall. It can in fact become a vitally important trained behavior should they ever get out. Look up Barbara Heidenreich, she has an excellent series of videos that can help you work on establishing a training relationship and introduce new desired behaviors. :)

    I decapitated a female black bird. I walked with my ex on the old railroad and found a female black bird with a broken wing. It was in pain, maybe hit by the veteran train. My ex wanted to take care of it, but I told her, "Unless you're ready to pay for a vet, then it's better to kill it. If a stray cat find it they're have fun with her before eating her alive." She understood. She went into my apartment, opened a beer and lit a cigarette, while I took my fishing knife and went outside again to decapitate the bird and throw the corpse into the bushes.

    Imagine a bird's eye view of the courtyard with the wundershpere in the 12 o'clock position, cathedral at 3 o'clock, and so on. Train in a semi-circle from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock going back and forth on the 12 o'clock side. This means from church, past wundershpere to the far stairs and then back. Cut close to the wundersphere but then cut inside toward the wreckage as soon as you pass your train to keep it bunched up. Train with the bow out for the "oh shit" moments, and then pull out your other weapon with AAT to take out the train.

    Well. Labs are really bird oriented dogs. You could probably train them to hunt other things, but if they're bred well, most of their instinct will make them focus on birds. Training for hunting takes a lot of time and must be started early. Labs CAN be guard dogs, but I would guess you'd have to pick hunting or guarding. Just because dogs aren't infinite learners. That and labs are generally too people loving to be very reliable as guarders. If you're planning to get two dogs this wouldn't be a problem though. :)

    After the Angry Birds Movie I think a multi-launch angry birds family coaster, something like cheetah hunt, would be a great fit at a park like holiday world or Kentucky kingdom or even knobels. The train would be angry birds and each car would be one, and you would launch into the pigs and an element could be themed to the birds moves like a tight helix as the boomerang bird, or the vertical drop like on verbolten as one of the baby blue birds or maybe as your going you could launch again even faster as the yellow bird.

    Taiwan has an elite Helicopter force of little bird gunships. Their role is to constantly train to fly 50 feet off the ground and poke holes into Mainland china, taking out missile and radar encampments. Essentially they train everyday for a D-Day style breach into china should they need to do so at some point in the future. This should shed a little light on passport requirements between the two nations. Hong Kong needs a passport to china even thought you can swim from Hong Kong to Mainland China.

    Actually, it's pretty common for falconers to capture juveniles that already know how to hunt and care for itself (easier to train a bird to hand than to raise it). It's also considered a matter of fact that one day your bird will just not come back, and that's why the jesses are made of leather instead of, say, a light chain: the leather will eventually rot, or the bird will just pick it off. [This site]( has a good rundown on it.

    Absolutely do not release a captive bird. It's not strong enough on to survive, it doesn't know how to forage for food, and if it's not native, it's both terrible for the environment and won't have a flock to fall in with. What you need to do is train the bird.

    I have the same kind of reaction. It's incredibly simple and mindless but I cannot stop playing it. It definitely feels rushed. They could have released it in a few months time when they have trading and battles and group captures but they didn't.

    It's impossible to say whether that nanday will be able to form a relationship with you. Part of it has to do with individual personality and part has to do with past experience. I would probably guess that the bird would at least be willing to have you as company, but whether he is/will be tame depends on how he was trained in the past and what the shelter is doing to keep him socialized. If he is tame, you should be able to train him fine.
