Amen, my brothers! Tiels are the best companion birds to have, but they can get a little too clingy. My boy tiel can wake the dead with his ear-shattering flock calls absent my presence.

Clipped wings or not it not a safe practice to take a bird outside. There are wind currents outside that do not exist inside a home where a bird, even with the wings clipped, could fly away for quite a distance. Not to mention a neighbors dog or cat or an owl or hawk that could end everything before you even have a chance to react. Please be careful and do not take any bird loose outside.

I should have explained better, I went on the steps and he didn't move, also was dead calm outside. I can see what you mean though, from now on just to be safe he will stay inside, and OUCH he would my earing again, how can I make him not think it is a toy?

I put him on my other shoulder and he went right back to it lol, lil stinker

Wow, Barry!

I can't believe you've purchased so many birds of different species within such a short time.

Congratulations on your new addition.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but it might be a good idea to consider put any purchases of additional birds on hold for at least a few months.

Sometimes it's very easy to get in over your head when you are caught up in the moment.

Please make sure you have a good emergency vet fund set up and a birdy first aid kit at hand as it is always best to be prepared.

I'll be looking forward to seeing more pictures of your three feathered kids in the near future!

Congratulations again and best wishes!

Deb, no more birdies I swear, my midlife crises is over

I got a great job working from home and as such I can afford any vet bills that might pop up, so that is covered.

TBH When I got Merlin I was looking at this guy as well, as I live alone in a huge house I went back today to get Mr Noname yet.

Working on my first aid kit as I think stuff is called different here in Canada

Thank you for your concern I know where it is coming from

Barry
