Most of my birds are like that with my head. They only are wary of our hands - we don't grab them with our mouths or our feet. My canary (i have only my one male again - sold all this year's chicks) is scared to death of my hands but will sit on my foot. I only approach Rosie from below the level of her head to pet her neck and she is okay with that. Being picked up from above is frightening because that's what raptors do, though I can lift Olive now as we are to the point of complete trust and she does not find anything I do threatening. It took about 3 months for her to let me catch and hold her, initially I had to bribe her to step up for treats but she is now very easily handled and I can scoop her up. Remind me to take a new video of Olive sometime. I last did so when she was still really new here and she was just starting to tame down. Her behavior now is adorable. She lays down and spins around (never all the way like cocks do, but back and forth) and coos like crazy when I pet her and she will sit next to me and snuggle into my hand making happy noises as long as I let her. Sometimes I'll run down the hall and back and she'll fly after me. She's like my shadow. I could definitely take her outdoors and she wouldn't leave and she has gotten out briefly by accident once and landed on my head when i opened the door. If we didn't have hawks, I would. On an only semi-related tangent, were German owl pigeons selectively bred to make owl like noises? Olive very rarely makes burbling coos like the usual pigeon. Only when she is extremely excited, as when I have been out for the day and come home and pet her, she'll do one. But she makes quiet "hoo, hoo" noises all the time and will repeat them as long as I am petting her. Rosie has yet to make a single sound. Haven't let her out today. She spent seven hours just sitting on her ledge before briefly jumping down to gorge and drink and then back onto the ledge.
