In our 3rd of our 4 Part series we continue our 2nd interview with Master Falconer Daryl Peterson. Dave & Daryl discuss how to best choose when & where to fly our parrots safely. There is no way to completely avoid the risk of Birds of Prey so it is important to be educated in minimizing this risk by not being too predictable or testing fate when they are most likely to be hunting and more desperate for food. Daryl also goes into further detail how the level of threat in the location and time you fly will greatly depend on the particular species of Bird of Prey that happen to be there and what their hunting habits are like.

To help further your education of birds of prey here is the link to the website Daryl mentioned in the video.

      Really interesting to listen all the dangers and what to consider to keep you parrot save. I haven't got a parrot yet. However, now I feel more scared and worried that I not sure I would be able to control everything.
      I suppose is better this an be to cautious than be sorry after because you lost your bird.
      Thank you for the video

      Common sense told me that flying after a strom would not be good, because I already thought about birds of prey being hungry. However, I did not think about keeping parrots in the day before a storm.

      When a raptor engages a flock of unfamiliar birds, it’s testing the waters……are these weird birds able to fly fast enough to get away? Will they attack me? What ARE these weird things?(and are they edible?)……they won’t necc attack immediately, because they don’t know if it’s safe…..and if the strange birds are fast, seem fit and basically like hard work, they’ll 9 times out of 10, just leave it. Birds, like people, don’t like working harder than they have to.That said, a hungry bird may well decide its worth the risk, and some raptors are bolder than others.

      Hi bird people. I've got a beautiful little parakeet that adopted me a few years ago as I was walking to get my mail. She landed on my shoulder! She was very young, in her first year. No band on her ankle. I couldn't locate the owners so we have a little parakeet! Her name is Biddy. A couple Springs ago I thought my friend was playing a trick on me just before Easter. I looked into her cage and there was a perfect little white egg!! Well I've had a couple parakeets when I was young and never did they lay eggs but our girl Biddy does! Anyhoo, Biddy went to the vet yesterday and she needs some antibiotics and antifungals. I'm just having such a difficult time grabbing her in the cage and giving her the meds. I'm so afraid I'll hurt her. She's a real squirmer. This is how I came across your channel. She's not terrible trained although she'll walk up my arm and climb across our hands, etc. Wish me luck. Better yet, say a prayer for Biddy and me. I'm going in to try again. She needs the meds. She was quite ill with diarrhea for several days thus the vet trip. She's seeming quite better already but I know we need to get these meds into her. K. Thanks for "listening." I don't see many videos on actually grabbing the untrained birds from cages. I was using a soft glove but others use a small towel. Any advice? Thanks. God bless.

      Great videos! Every summer I get my 6 cockatoos outside as much as I can, usually everyday.
      I have been watching THEM to let me know if there is someone in the trees around us that could be dangerous. This series has given me so much more information to keep them safe!
      THANK YOU!

      Hey Jamie, just a heads up, there’s a typo in the title. Pretty sure you meant, WHEN freeflying your birds.

    • Trisha May

      I hope you see this comment! I was wondering, since it wasn't mentioned, are owls a big threat as well since they are a bird of prey?
