Here are my Budgies, Siri and Soma! I was challenged by Photography 101 to share a photo which illustrates the word “connect,” and my birds were definitely connected in the moment depicted here. I was in the midst of clicker training them to touch the pink ball you see in the photo, and they were working hard to figure out what I wanted ( Siri especially, as you can see by her cocked head). They became quite consistent about touching the ball after some practice, Siri leading the way and Soma following after his cage mate proved that the ball wasn’t going to detonate at any moment! That is the fun of working with multiple birds. Sometimes a brave one can encourage a more reserved flock mate to step outside of the comfort zone!
