Ahhhh!! Ok I'll fix that.....have to go into you tube and change it... Thought it automatically sets it to public...ahggg!
My tablet still says it is private and I play you tube videos on it all the time. OK, set my browser to pc mode and video plays so problem solved. Cute watching Poppers enjoy singing and whistling :xflove:

I still thank you for introducing me to Pierre.... He's starting to come out of his shell now and really is a sweet bird.
I honestly think he was sweet all along. Just went through a bad hiccup in life, nothing that can't be over come.
Do believe he had a bad vet experience...and that's where the fear of hands seems to associate with displeasure.
But last couple days he seems to have been putting that behind him and opening up.

Pierre enjoying the java tree for first time.
He's doing really good at stepping up now and not backing away. We're building trust.
Also today I figured out ( well I speculate) the reason why he was fearful of hands. I had him on my arm, and walked by bathroom, my wife turned on tooth brush as she was brushing teeth. Pierre started screaming and freaking out....she turned it off, he stopped. And was calm on my arm...she turned it back on with toothbrush hidden behind her...he freaked out again...
Everything makes sense now. Judging by his poorly ground nails which are a bit too short, he had his nails done with one of those batter or electric nail grinders for dog nails... I willing to bet that. Because overall, he is just too sweet to be a bad bird and hasn't been bad at all.
Plus he had a bad a bad wing clip job before I got him....not sure who clipped them, but they sure did butcher him. I'm not a fan of clipping. I have had birds that were clipped, but that's sometimes how they come to me. I then let them grow out.

Lola is a nice looking bird there Andrea!!!
Thanks Michael... she was just a 7 day old pink blob the first time I saw her. I knew the breeder and let her do the hand feeding. She's 14 this year!

Looks like a professional portrait for Lola! It's a stunning image of her!
Thanks! My husband took that photo a long time ago. We set up our living room with an all plant background, bucket with a large branch and photographed several of our birds... at least the ones who would sit there long enough for a few shots. Here she is in all her glory...on that same day. Year 2008
