On getting them back into the cage. I find bribery works with 3 of my 4 newbies. I show them an open box of sunflower seed. ( Caiques are allowed a SMALL pinch of sunflower seed each day)
WOW, A WHOLE BOX OF SUNFLOWER SEED!!!!!!!.

They jump on, and I move them to their cages.
Except for one. (There's always one!). I haven't figured out yet if shes stupid or clever. She looks at the sunflower seed warily, and backs off.
She insists on being caught by hand. She doesn't struggle or bite, but she refuses to be bribed!.
