is more like a Chicken Lory - Afraid of everything. He avoids water,
other birds, most fruit and veggies and even toys! He still manages to
look good for a photo.
In that time I've had him, I taught him a few tricks. He shakes hands,
waves, runs across the loungeroom to climb his perch (only on command),
does a double-turn and poops on command (sometimes). He's learning to
show off his wings, to do card tricks, nod "yes" and shake "no". I
thought his favorite treat was apple, until he tried honey! Since using
honey as a treat he does his tricks faster. He doesn't talk yet, but
whistles the pitch to "G'day Mate". He loves to climb around the poles
on the front porch. He's the brightest Rainbow Lorikeet we own.
He's very attached to me. If he's not on me, he has to be able to see
me. When we turn off the lights at night he makes cute little calls to
try and get me to come back. It almost sounds like he's crying. But then
it's time for sleep for all of us! G'night, Al!
