Tinkerbell Legacy - Living with a flying parrot

Hanging beaded curtains not entirely safe
shanlung
Yesterday when I got back from work in late afternoon, I went into Riamfada room to give him his evening meal as usual. Then 45 minutes later, I went in again with a stick perch to take him out to the living room.

I mentioned before that he overflew my head a couple weeks ago and got to the dining room. Since then, I installed 2 hanging beaded curtains over the door to his room. The swaying curtains seemed to hold him back. He tried to overfly me instead of landing on the hand perch, but when he saw those beaded curtains, he did not attempt to go through the door way on his own.

When he landed on the hand perch, I then took him through that doorway, holding the beaded curtains apart.

So yesterday evening when he overflew me, I naturally thought he would turn back at the doorway as before. Because of that thought, I slowly turned around thinking I would see him fluttering or hanging on that beaded curtains.

Perhaps he did so. But when I turned to look, he was already flying into the dining room.

He had taken stock of those beaded curtains everytime I took him out. He knew those were not a major impediment seeing the way I parted the curtains to take him out.

I was not sure if he flew through the curtains, or flew to the curtains, worked his way through the curtains and flew off again.

It did not matter.

Luckily that was not the final barrier to the great big outdoor.

Perhaps I needed to get those special heavy weighted linked chains hanging curtains rather than the pretty light weight beaded curtains.

Perhaps thats why walk in aviaries in major bird parks relied on twin doors for entries in addition to heavy weighted linked chain hanging curtains.

I learn that vigilance must always be maintained, and at all times.

I was lucky that this was a painless lesson, that beaded hanging curtains can be bypassed just like that.


So do not rely on hanging beaded curtains for that final barrier to great outdoors. They might fail you at the time when you really needed them.
