Sunda is a DNA sexed male perfect lorikeet. He was born in the spring of 2008 and I got him from a pet store I was working at which specializes in birds. He is moderately quiet and I have only heard him say "step up" and "no you step up." He is not a screamer except when the water is running; he seems to get excited by that. He does get scared kind of easily and if I can get him to calm down, I would love to do educational presentations with him the way I used to with my eclectus. But if he never does get comfortable with that, I love him just the same. :)
I have been working with birds for over 13 years now. I started out in a local pet store and have also worked for some of the top trainers in the world. I believe almost anything (natural) is possible with positive reinforcement training and operant conditioning. I am also a member of the Pet Bird Association of Virginia.
What other type of pets do you own?
