DIY Bird Toy Ideas – Video
In about 24 months our household has gone from 0 to 9 birds.
Six budgies (2 males/4 females), a female Senegal (surgically sexed) and a male African ringneck (males have the ring).
I fondly call the budgies my little hooligans who have their own cage as does Peaches our 9 year old female Senegal and Keto the newest member to our family, the 17-year-old male African ringneck.
The following is a thread between Mary Anne M and Catherine

The more information we have, the more precise our answers.
8/23/2018 – I have a Hawkheaded parrot named Rudy (above) that is the greatest companion!
He has been with me for the past 2 years & comes out with me daily.
My husband & I just took a long weekend vacation (4 days).
He (the bird) stayed at our house with pet sitters & remained in his cage.
Upon my return my hawkhead totally freaked out.
I let him venture out of his cage on his own & just relax before trying to handle him as usual ~ bit me down to the bone.
This is still the 1st day we are home.
I’m not a novice & have owned my gray & yellow nape for over 30 years. Thanks Mary Anne
One answer started with
Yet these three species come in close to a combined 100 flavors.
Major Mitchell cockatoos are not loud, and not necessarily cuddly
Bare eyed cockatoos are all but demure
Noble macaws are only 12 to 14 inches long.
Hyacinth macaws are up to 44 inches long – 4 times the size of a noble macaw.
You can’t compare the two just because the are macaws.
My morning was going quite well.
Dr. Johansen called with the lab results and my A1c was down to 5.9 from 7.4 in January.
I attribute that to Catherine’s deployment of our keto lifestyle diet.
from “comments” in a recent order confirmation email
he is less than a year old and screams loudly when he cannot see me. I am hoping the calm herb will be effective when my neighbors are home. 🙂
Or just gives me a break when i need it. I took him to my moms for christmas and she was not happy about the loudness. 🙁

A patient of mine highly recommended you.
I’ve watched some of the biting videos but you see I took in a rescue sunconure.
We believe it’s male.
It humps everything right now.
His wings are not clipped mind you and I’m not against doing it if it will help.
My issue is not only is he hand shy but also a biter really bad.
We believe he is 4-5yo.
Where should I start and how?
Neil Losin’s short (7:59) documentary, Parrots in Peril.
The film examines the threat that poaching poses to Miami’s wild macaws.
