I'm so glad you got Money back!!
I have been following this thread with baited breath and I am thrilled to read of a very happy ending regarding your feather pal.
It's great that Money was found and is now with you again.
@greys4u I did ask about it. She sounded skeptical about it but I will get then microchipped for sure. They don’t have leg bands so i need a proof of ownership.
@Kuzey I'm sure your birds benefit from the flying. I do my best to let mine fly — around the house mostly, around the pool area more often. But mine are smaller so that works.
Good that you can see a few things you can tweak, as far as the whole experience goes. Sounds like you can fix the problem easily.
@finchly that’s great. I agree. I think small birds are easier to train.
I just did a recall training at Central Park baseball field with my sun conure Nikki! He did a good job! As soon as I noticed he was getting distracted, I listened to my gut and put him in a cage even though he wanted to stay out.
So - do you recall with them first indoors? Then move outdoors? Or what.
@finchly I start recall training indoor first. I do recall straight from perch, from floor to me, from floor to high up at multiple ascending angles (I stand on a chair or ladder, first with a distance from them where the angle for ascending is low then move the chair close to them to increase the angle for ascending; from high to low with multiple descending angles (put them on cabinets or curtain rods and ask them to fly down), and recall from a different room when they cant see me. Once their recall is solid and they respond 90% of the time then I feel comfortable doing it outdoor.
When I do recall outdoor, its similar to indoor but I also put them on a tree and ask them to fly back to me.
This is the second time I flew them at the Central Park
