Kili Senegal Parrot - Flighted Parrot Tricks Medley (Flying Senegal Parrot Tricks)

Published on October 22, 2009

http://ParrotWizard.com

This is the ultimate senegal parrot tricks video of all time. I think this video will really demonstrates why parrots are the greatest pets and why they should be allowed to fly (but with proper training of course, do not buy or fly a parrot unless you know what you are doing). This video is a medley of Kili's flight based tricks.

I am always looking for new ways how to teach my parrot tricks, not to bite, and be social with guests. To teach tricks to parrot is a great way to build these crucial skills. To teach senegal parrot how to fly to me was the epitome of training.

The video starts with my parrot performing some ABA recalls by flying from person to person when called. Then she performs tricks from her original non-flighted (while clipped) routine: nod, shake, wave, turn around, and wings. She does all of these parrot tricks for just a single treat. Nod is where she nods her head up and down like saying yes. Shake is shaking her head from side to say like saying no. Wave is where she lifts her foot up to greet people. Turn around is when she does a spin 360 degrees around on her perch. And wings is the big eagle trick where she displays her wings in full. Then I snap my fingers and the Senegal Parrot drops back and hangs upside down from my hand to demonstrate the bat trick.

Next I recall Kili and she flies to me to perform the "bang" trick. I put her on the floor and point my hand at her like a gun and say "bang" and she drops over and plays dead. The parrot play dead for 10 seconds until I release her to get back up. After most tricks I am sending her back to her perch and then calling her to fly to me when I am ready to do the next trick with her. This is both great exercise and great practice for flight recalls.

Then you see an around the corner recall which may not seem like a big deal but that is only because the camera is in a position to view everything. I called Kili but neither I nor she could see each other and she is just flying to my voice. It's like playing hide and seek and she hears which direction my voice was from but then she has to fly until she finds me to land on my hand. Then I put her down on a chair where she grabs a coin and flies over to her piggy bank to make a deposit. Next she flies from her perch down to the green table to play bowling. She pushes the bowling ball with her beak and nails a strike on the first try!

The the Senegal Parrot flies back and forth between the table and chair to collect pieces from her puzzle and come back to complete the puzzle. The video only shows one piece but in the long version you can watch her complete an entire puzzle by flying for the pieces:

Then I put a ring down on the chair and she flies down to grab the ring and fly across the room with it to drop it on the peg. I really think ring on a peg is now her favorite trick and she can differentiate 3 colors to place rings on a peg by color. Not only that but then she has to fly back to me to get her treat and then back to her perch to eat it. Really makes my job easy cause she does all the work and I don't even have to walk over! This is kind of a big deal because I am having her fly to do tricks all over my apartment and she can fly faster than I could run.

Then I throw a ball on the floor and my Senegal Parrot flies down from her perch to pick it up. She flies up onto the table and dunks a basket into the basketball hoop. A parrot flying to play basketball even puts NBA basketball players to shame :)

And for her final trick, I throw a ball on the floor and Kili flies down to pick it up. Then she flies up and lands on my hand and gives me the ball. The video ends with her returning to her perch.

The incredible thing is that pretty much all parrots are intelligent and possible to train so you could teach tricks like these to a budgie, parakeet, parrotlet, lovebird, cockatiel, conure, poicephalus parrot, eclectus, african grey, amazon, cockatoo, or macaw. I just love to teach tricks to parrots!

This video is meant to replace Kili's previous medley called Play Dead and Other Tricks because she has progressed so much in all of those tricks, added many more, and has been flying to do them:
