Dante's tricks (:

Who said birds can't learn tricks.

I taught Dante de Rose to shake hands (finger is a better word for a bird's owner ), wave and kiss in command.

Here is a video of him performing only two tricks (as I have yet to find an angle to film the kiss without actually showing a lot of a human).

In the video, you will hear "hello" (s) few times. The creature who was saying it was Dante himself. Then @1:14 of the video, you will be able to hear him imitating my giggle.

He is one smart bird. I love the fact that he trusts us and love to be close to us

Enjoy!

Kat

Dante is amazing. His coloring is amazing. As is his talent. But you are obviously an animal whisperer Kat. Can you tell us something about his breed, where he's from,etc?

Did some one own him and give him to your mom? Or was she/you his first owner. I also would like to know how old he is. I know birds live a long time.

His hello and giggle woke Jasper up from a deep sleep!

He's gorgeous. What a sweetheart. He's definitely a lover, and a keeper.

Enjoyed seeing Dante in action! He is sooo pretty! Are the females a different color? We have a male red-bellied parrot who talks. He is not nearly as docile appearing as your Dante seems. He is not clipped, however, so that could account for some of that. Really have to be conscious of where that beak is and be in tune to his mood. My husband is oblivious (and not just to Gabe ) and the result has been in a good nip now and again.

You will have to build this trust. Once it is built, it is hard to break they then turn into awesome trusting birds and become so loving to being cuddled.

Dante is a galah ; also known as a rose breasted cockatoo. He is around a year old. A friend of the family gave him to my mum last march. This friend raises galahs. In one section of his farm, a forest-like area is built where those galah are raised. Dante came from that friend. Galah are known to be the "clown" of the parrot kingdom lol they have a fun personality As i am typing this, i can hear him blabbing a conversation on his own, but i can not understand a thing from what he is saying lol

I think wing clipping can be so helpful in training. I also read that it is safer for a pet parrot. Dante's wings are clipped but to the point where he can still fly around one feet (more of lifting himself a little off the ground) let me find that article that i read to share it with u ^_^
Males and females galah have on one color (same as Dantes). The color around the iris of each gender differ though. Males' have it brown and females have it pink- on the eye, around the iris
