Red-Fan Parrot Struts His Stuff

tags: , , , ,

As some of you know, I recently added a four-month-old hawk-headed (red-fan) parrot, Deroptyus a. accipitrinus, to my household. I plan to learn how to clicker-train this bird (I already have the necessary tools and books). Below the fold is an example of another young Hawk-headed parrot, named Scooter (owned by Jeannie), who was approximately eight months old in this video. This training session reinforces and refines earlier training where Scooter was taught how to place a ring on a peg, to shake hands and to place a ball in a bowl. [7:38]
