Tinkerbell Legacy - Living with a flying parrot - Rant 03 (a flighted parrot mentality) & Understanding the mind of your grey and other parrots

2600 years ago, Sun Tzu wrote his Ping Fa better known perhaps to you as 'The Art of War'

One fundamental underlie his thoughts in his PingFa.

知 己 知 彼
zhi ji zhi bi

百 战 百 胜
bai zhan bai sheng

or

Know yourself, Know your opponent
A hundred battles, a hundred victory.

I am not saying we treat our grey as an enemy to do battle with.

But if we understand them, it may make it that much easier to live with them and to train with them.

Whether you want to train with them as friends, or to train them as you the "Alpha', understanding their mind must help.

And perhaps those that thought they must dominate them and be the Alpha might even change their mind instead.

And
perhaps those that have been bitten and otherwise terrorised by their
grey might be bitten a lot less and enjoy their parrot a lot more, and
find training with them a lot easier. And in bonding with them.

If
you understand the mentality of your parrot, that might go a long way
to becoming friends together. And save you lot of pain and heartaches in
the process.


Notwithstanding that was written in early 2005, I cannot add further to that.

I think this is one of the most important of the many entries I have written over the last ten years.

I find what I wrote to be applicable to my living with Riamfada, and to Yingshiong even if YS was not a grey. And with my other birdies as well


My 2 cents and for all it is worth.
