This video shares the journey of Omen, a Timneh African Grey who learned to free fly through our Freestyle Flyer’s Club Program (freeflight course). You can learn more about the course we offer here:

Disclaimer: This is not intended as a “how to” video and we strongly discourage DIY freeflight training without the help of an experienced mentor/trainer.

Telemetry/GPS is not going to be an option for EVERY free flighted parrot, as Omen proves in this video. That’s why you TRAINING matters! Never rely on GPS/Telemetry. In collaboration with Marshall Radio World, use promo code BIRDTRICKS or mention BIRDTRICKS for the BirdTricks Package here:

      So nice to see a successful Timneh flight! I have a Timneh and older Amazon and my dream is to someday do free flight with them.

      Parrot IQ is quite high compared to other birds.
      He has intelligence. Parrot's IQ is about 30 degrees.
      It's being speculated and it's similar to human intelligence by two to three years old.
      In the case of a large parrot with an IQ, it's a five-year-old child's
      It's comparable, so it's very intelligent.

      I am looking to purchase an African grey or a timney grey or a cockatoo so I would like your opinion on which one to get I am going to build a large aivry outside. I want one of these birds for a companion I understand you don’t like the umbrella cockatoo but I would like your opinion for the one I should get for the best companionship and training ability. I also want to know if I am correct by saying that his diet should consist of some seeds and vegetables a small amount of nut and oats and fruit for training only. I would enjoy your respond even if it’s not a video. I live in Harare Zimbabwe Africa.

      Omen is the most unique name for a bird or any animal I have ever heard and I absolutely love it! Also seeing Capri working with the birds is amazing to me. Ive never seen a kid her age do so well with birds especially bigger ones.

      This is a plea for help from anyone who offers it. I have a cockatiel. I've had him for about half a year and we were super close, he was very bonded to me and loved receiving scratches or sitting on me. For context before i explain, I keep his cage in my bedroom and he spends most of his time in my room with me. Recently, he was on top of his cage and I tripped on the leg of a nearby stool and by instinct my slammed my hand down to keep from falling. My hand landed on his tail and he tried to pull it away whilst I fell and he couldn't and when I took my hand off he backed up and hissed at me. This was a few weeks ago and he hasn't been the same since. He isn't so scared of me as he is my hands. It breaks my heart and I've been having bad days ever since then. He's very skittish and tries to bite at my hand now. Won't even step up and rarely accepts even treats. I know everyone always says it's harder to regain trust than to gain trust initially. Anyone with advice, I'd appreciate it greatly. I'm so upset.
