Owning a Hawkheaded parrot is an experience that I wouldnt trade for the world. You certainly share the best of times and the worse of times. My question to Hawkhead owners is - Gimby, my girl, gets so rambuctious preening herself that she does not overpreen by any means BUT she'll start hissing as she preens, every now and then not each and every time. For example if she's out for an hour she'll of hissed as she preens within that hour about 6-10x's. Any body elses HH do that? Also, if you make to much eye contact without blinking, even as your talking sweetly she starts pinning then you have to blink but once that ring turns that thick, goldish color and stays that way calmly without making it obvious you need to walk away and pronto. Remove all eye contact for awhile till she chills or get attacked. YOU MUST BLINK when speaking to Gimby lol. I dont blink any more or less then any one else. Believe me I've been forced to pay attention to it thanks to Gimby. Any body else experience this? Or is this all in the way I raised her?
