Baby birds need A LOT of praise and encouragement when they do the right thing. In this video is the baby blue throated macaw I named, Zoey. She is still a baby and just learning how to fly around and use those wings of hers! When birds are so young, they're naturally curious about flight and trying it out. Just like human babies fall all over the place, baby birds will fall and sometimes end up in places they aren't so sure of how to come down from. You can tell from the body language of baby Zoey in this video that she is tempted so many times by the encouragement of her owners, until she finally tries it, trusting that they will be there for her when she makes it down... and of course, they are.
