I wondered this myself. One video does show them out at her parents' house. Everybody seems to love the birds and they're out of the cages a lot. It's definitely a feel good video and shows how happy many of the birds are. It's called something like 'Our morning routine' or 'Our daily routine'.How much time do they actually get to spend just being companions with their people?
I should have been clearer when I said what I said. I haven't watched any of his videos, so I'm not talking about mannerisms. It's his tone in his writing, perhaps mostly his comments. It is at times a little aggressive. Perhaps he sees his birds as more of 'work birds' and that comes across in his methods. It is difficult to articulate. I'll try to make my prior comment clearer.Yeah, he seems pretty awkward to me, but I sympathize because I am too.
For the most part, I would say that WnP is a great channel! There may be one or two things I don't agree with, but overall, good info!Just going to edge in here with a small question of my own, what are your opinions on WingsnPaws? It's a channel I just recently discovered, and I'd like to know what y'all think of it. Smokey sure is cute, and seems to be well cared for and loved, but I haven't seen enough of WnP's videos to really form a conclusive opinion yet.
This has been a great thread so far! Interesting to read the discussion and everyone's thoughts, and a lot of the information is very useful.
That video popped up in my recommended to and I watched it, I cried with them! The whole family looked so distraught and all those happy carefree clips with Bandit. It was heartbreaking!I don't really have an opinion on BirdTricks but I do watch their videos from time to time just because their birds are so cute. Hate to have to share sad news but their cockatoo Bandit just passed away
Me too! I was putting on my makeup for the day this morning when I watched it and couldn't stop crying.

They're not sure. They've spent over $3000 worth of testing to try the find the cause but still have no definite answer. They changed their aviaries because they were afraid maybe the sand built up a heavy metal toxicity over the years. But the sand had very very very minimally amounts of iron so that's not even a 100% possibility. They said his organs were fine so there's no telling, unfortunately. They did have to visit a new AV at an ER because they were out of state so maybe the vet messed up? I don't know. It's so heartbreakingOmg really? What happened to Bandit?
Yes Bandit, so sad. They are devastated. I was in shock when I found out yesterday.I don't really have an opinion on BirdTricks but I do watch their videos from time to time just because their birds are so cute. Hate to have to share sad news but their cockatoo Bandit just passed away
I have been watching most of their videos recently and I have started to like them. Yes they have made mistakes before but how many of us have made a mistake with our bird in the past? I can guarantee everyone has made a mistake in the past bird related or not.Birdtricks: Personally, I really like them. They are informative. You just have to get past the commercialism part. They are running a business, nothing wrong with that. Birds are their lives and they found a way to make money sharing what they know. They may not be for everyone, but they do adore their flock. I respect them, they free flight all their birds, and really seem to care about their health and well-being. I used to be a dog trainer, not everyone liked my techniques. And I certainly have my opinions about some of the training methods I have seen other dog trainer use. I have bought their pellets. lbs for lbs compared to tops they are a larger pellet and less expensive then tops. I will continue to watch their videos, and apply what I learn. That's my 2 cents.
