I post about progress so it’s only fair I post about set backs. I have thought we were doing well but today I discovered that I’m not that interesting. Lol. Pavi has been very willing to come out of his cage and sit near and listen to me read the news or watch videos or read these forums to him. Today I went in and forgot to take my phone. I sat there and carried on a conversation with him much as would if I was reading. He never even came to the cage door. He stayed in the back of his cage playing with a toy. Just to test the theory I went and got my phone and just randomly googled stuff without speaking. The little booger came out as soon as he saw the phone....... my bird has successfully bonded with an IPhone He’s not getting anymore phone time. He wanted nothing to do with stepping up on a perch today and pretty much proved he’ll only step on my hand or arm if he’s on the floor and needs help. I guess we aren’t as far along as I had thought.
