Gosh i was just ranting about generalities of keeping a lone bird and covering at night.

I didnt mean this person isnt meeting all normally expected guidelines of care because she seems to be.

However expert opinions are in disagreement about covering tge bird at night and in my 30+ year experience owning birds ranging from finches to cockatoos, my observation has been that individual birds respond differently to being covered.

This Bowie clearly does not like to be put to bed alone and covered. The challenging behavior including the nipping was met with the wrong response from the owner who should not have pulled away as that positively reinforces the biting behavior (by achievong the "victory" of controlling the situation) but rather persisted with the step-up offered finger and stepped closer to the bird and use a lower, more calm tone with the bird. Counterintuitively, then the bird should be reassured and comforted and not punished in any way because only "authoritative" parenting is effective not "authoritarian".

Authoritarian is using punishment, authoritative is providing reassurance while correcting the behavior.  Permissive is allowing the behavior.

So what she has done is first, not respect the birds resistance to a situation it doesnt like and approached it without a calm and loving air of command to force it (authoritarian) which led to the demonstration of dominance (bite). Then she has been permissive and positively reinforced the bite by granting the victory (backing away) and then engaged in punushment (reproachful tone) and forced the original situation the bird was protesting.

These are mistakes that are hard to watch presented as entertainment.

Ahh, now I see where you're coming from.

It looks like, similar to training dogs, there's better methods of doing it than the common ways.

So that bird owner is doing the common way, which is what she knows, but sense you know of a better method, it's hard to watch the mistakes being made.

Am I correct in thinking that?


I think so except im not sure my way isnt mainstream.

I've made mistakes. Lots of them. But i've also succeeded where others have failed. For example, my male moloccan cockatoo, a two pound bird with thousands of pounds of bite pressure. When he hit puberty he began biting, and nothing seemed to work, but then i remembered the story of how Helen Keller's governess had a breakthrough: by excluding her from the group while doing an activity that seemed attractive. Eventually the subject tries following the rules to rejoin the group, which you can then positively reinforce. I tried this method on my kirby over a long difficult period but eventually it worked and i never had him bite again. Later, i found out that male moloccan cockatoos raised in captivity have a species-wide problem with aggression at puberty and attack the females as well as people and that between loss of habitat and this difficulty in captivity, they are endangered. As far as i know im the only one who has broken through on this.

Again though, i've had plenty of failures. While i had a pretty good relationship with my many-owner live-caught amazon who was my shoulder bird for years, eventually i made him hate me by leaving him home all alone while i went to work for months. Then i pushed him too hard on the resultant biting and he was a grumpy mean old bird after that.

These breeder-raised first-owner birds seem so easy and friendly that owners who have never had trouble birds can fail to realize when they're making major mistakes like backing away when bitten, which btw is a classic mistake documented in bird training books. It seems this particular bird person does not know she needs more education and has not read any training books to know shes making a mistake.

Edit: as to the unconventional, i think Bowie needs to be taken to bed at night by the owner. I have had many birds and only a small number will come to bed. My sun conures come to bed with me more nights than not, and Bowie would love that, i am certain of it.

I think it's fan art (or maybe official promotional art), not a screencap from the show.  But I could be wrong.

Have you ever listened to a song and were surprised that the official lyrics were different than what you thought you heard in the song?  E.g., the embedded YouTube ("Little Talks" by Of Monsters and Men) -- many people have reported hearing "... shit will carry on ...", when the official lyrics are "... ship will carry our ...".


ooh i love these things!



Scuse me while i kiss this guy.

Im still not convinced it isnt the actual lyric.

Hello everyone! It's time for a new Ponychan/Ponyville fortress in Dwarf Fortress! If you aren't familiar with dorf fort, the semi-official motto is "Losing is Fun!", and for good reason. Shit can hit the fan and spiral into chaos fun if one isn't careful.

Anyway, if you'd like to join, give me a (nick)name and what kind of skills (see below) and what kind of job (see below) your dwarf should focus on. You don't have to be exact if you don't want to, just give me a general idea and I'll do my best.
First come, first serve. Depending on how many people join initially, I might not be able to assign you to a dwarf initially, but every so often, a caravan of new dwarves comes along and I can change their nicknames and skill/labor focuses.

Like the Hunger Game threads, you guys don't directly control the outcome, but unlike the Hunger Game threads, This isn't entirely random, and I'll give you as much say as I can.

Fair warning: It's been a while since I played, so I'm not sure how long our fort will last.

Skills: http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Skill#Skills
Jobs: http://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/DF2014:Labor#Labor_Categories
There are also "noble" classes which are sort of like administrators.

Hey guys! i'm exhausted! my legs are sore, my brain is dried up, and i'm just done doing things for today period! and then i thought about that feeling when you are asleep, then you wake up for like no reason, and your bed is still warm and just purely comfortable. then you look at the clock, and it's still like 2 or 3 hours before you need to wake up, so you get to have the joy of just relaxing back into that warm dimension of sleepytimes again, and it feels infinitely better than when you went to bed the first time!

yeah... that's the best...

what are some of your favorite unique feelings/situations?

My month/year is NOT starting off well. Like, at all.

I have had pretty much a small breakdown daily this whole week. And now I just spent three hours practically just sitting here refreshing tabs and didn't even get the strength to get up and eat till just now.

I have no one around me in my everyday to talk to. Everyone I know is at work, and most online friends are asleep.

I'm not gonna bore you by spelling out all the details of why I'm feeling so crappy here in this OP, and attemps to console will likely just end up with me shooting everything down and feeling worse and make everyone else feel like shit too.

So really, I could just use the company, if anyone wants to come in for a bit.
