Tinkerbell Legacy - Living with a flying parrot

Masochistic Yingshiong

Here are a couple of photos just taken of YS sleeping.

I can never figure out why he chose that place and fought so hard to keep that place to sleep in. That cannot be comfortable when he has many other much more comfortable places to chose from.

You can see his rump is against the wall and the tail pointing upwards.

Maybe I shall try to give him a bed of nails (to his size of course!) for his masochistic comfort.

YS photos in kitchen, living and dining area and fast flight
shanlung
.

YS was singing when I woke. He stopped when I went to let him in. As I was having my breakfast still to his silence, I got a bit worried until he sang again. Then at 915, I weighed his MM to be 37.9 gm. I got rid of it into the suris and gave fresh MM at 38.4 gm.

YS then got to the scale. His weight was at 31.2 gm At least the weight is getting to 31.0 that I was trying for.

This lowering of weight did not improve the response to the recalls. He had reacted instantly even at heavier weight. Not likely he was going to be more instant than that. He still refused to turn around corners to come to me. But I prepared for that by attempting to do some recalls down the PC room corridor. But he was not keen even when I waved suri at him.

As we were having a break, I took some photos of him. I posted those earlier photos taken of him in the kitchen. As far as for pooping, he was like Tinkerbell. There will always be some preferred perches. He spend bulk of time in flight area which already have newspapers under his perches. In the livng room, his preferred perches were on the fan and on the hook of his bamboo cage. You can see the towels placed there.

The earlier photos of YS taken with flash froze his wings in flight. But that flight was short, maybe about 6 feet and at the photo, he was already slowing down and the flash could freexe him.

I tried to take flash photo of him flying to me across intermediate distance of about 14 feet. He was going too fast and the flash could not freeze him in flight. Even so, this flight was still slow compared to his recall across longer distances. And when he was going truly fast in the flight room as I related a while back, he was just a blur. I was hoping he would do those super fast flights in the apartment but he had not done those yet. But then, there was this hawk flying across the window that triggered him into rapid evasive super flight.

At 11 am, the MM was at 38.1 and YS at 32.4 gm

YS liked to be near me. If I was in the flight area, he would periodically fly in. Perhaps to see if I got more treats for him. He was still not that totally comfortable yet with the PC room to fly into there to look for me. But he was prepared to be brought into the PC room.

At 130 pm , the MM was at 37.9 that I then topped up to 38.4 gm. YS was at 32.6 gm

At 230 pm, he was at 32.8 gm. The effect of the two crickets I gave him showed, as well as the suris and millis.

At 630 am the MM was at 37.9 gm. I weighed YS. His weight would determine the MM that was to be given. He was at 32.9 gm . I gave him one more medium cricket. The MM was topped up to 38.3 gm, but that was given only after he slept.
