    misty is flying!

    Even though not all her wing feathers are in yet, misty is flying! She getting pretty good at landing, still face plants on occasion. She goes in circles pretty well. But still makes a lot of noise. At the end of each flight though, she stands really tall and looks at us for praise. She's very proud of her flight.

    They are a joy to behold in flight.
    So pleased she seems to be so proud of her efforts.
    It is good she is gaining control and flight muscle before she has a full set of flights.

    She was practicing daily before they came in. She would stand on the top of the cage and just flap light crazy for a good 30-40 seconds.

    Odin is a screamer when he flies .... No idea why daft bird he is!

    Leia used to do that then one day took off and landed face first in the sofa cushions once she realised she was in the air

    Ability to fly+ high places to land+ a desire to not be in a cage during the day=me being late for work. Sigh.

    That is always good fun.
    Buy a small net. I know this can back fire on ones relationship. But I do what I have to when I need.
    Letting them out and getting them back in is one of life's challenges.
    I take two flighted guys up stairs with me and they are so good at following me back down when they have to go back to the bird room. So I do not have to use the net on them. But when I was medicating Gabby and Paco they were taken twice a day with the net. And Paco still loves me. And I see no set back in Gabby, but she is not tame.
