Happy Birthday to me! {Plus some fun videos}

I have just been on cloud nine thanks to us finally buying a house! It'll be hard not to be all smiles today, even if it wasn't my birthday!

Last year, for my birthday, I shared with you some music videos by Macklemore. I had just gotten very much into him at the time.

This year, I thought I would share with you some fun videos by The Parrot Wizard. He has an amazing senegal parrot that is soooo smart!

Here is Kili in a Doritos Commercial:




Kili Flying Free in the Park:




Before I stumbled on the Parrot Wizard's YouTube channel, I had already trick trained my parrot. She can wave, turn around and give me five. I have been wanting to train her more and these videos reinspired me.

We are growing her wings out and really want to flight train her. I doubt we'll ever be able to take her outside without a harness, but I would love to teach her how to fly around our house. I also want to train her to do more tricks.

We are working on "Stick 'em Up." It's like Kili's "wings" but with a different command and gesture. We want her to stick her wings up in the air when we point at her with a gun motion and say "stick 'em up!"

I'll have to video record her tricks sometime and share them with you. For now, I'll leave Kili to do the videos. :)

    1. Thank you and thank you! We are sooooo excited! :D I should definitely get a video up of my birdie doing some tricks. I have a really old video that only shows off two of her tricks, so its outdated. She does them so much better now, too. :)
