I once had a parakeet, i taught him to communicate by whistling, or mimic my whistle.. It took a couple of weeks. That summer i let him outside and
fly freely, i whistled, he whistled back, but he didnt fly back. So i followed and whistled and the further i went into the woods the further he flew,
and i taught;" He will never return home " I went back and just as i went in the house, he stood on the porch and flew up and sat on my shoulder..
A couple of years later we had a dozen of chaffinches outside looking for food, each morning i went out and gave them some bread crunches, and taught
them on my whistle food is around.. The whole summer i did the same thing, each and everyday, the dozen became over a hundred sitting around in the
trees.. And on one early summer morning i told a girl i once dated;" You want to see something different " She looked outside and saw at most three or
four chaffinches, i told her to stand in the middle, the few chaffinches followed her.. I stood back and said;" Watch this" I whistled and over a
hundred birds came flying from the trees, and she screamed, terrified threw the bread in every direction and ran inside..
And she said;" You F# IDIOT! "
I did the same with foxes, but the local hunter told me;" Its your fault i need to put them to sleep, cause they will die during the winter " The last
time i feed a wild animal.. It still hurts today, hearing those four shoots..
