First failure at harnessing of Yingshiong

Folks,

While I posted the success of each milestones, I also
must post my failures as well.
Despite my earlier preparations for Yingshiong, the
actual harnessing of him was a disaster. The photos and details can be read
in "First attempts at harness"
http://shanlung.livejournal.com/2006/02/18/

Subsequent days recorded the recovery of
his trust in me.

I am plotting as to what other schemes I should try or to throw up the towel and just enjoy YS only at home. But giving up would mean such a loss to YS as well as to me, that he might never fly safely outside and broaden his experience beyond the walls and ceiling of the apartment.

Shama Yingshiong Chapter 1 ending - my last report



To friends of Yingshiong,

I do hope you enjoyed the time that I have spend with
Yingshiong the shama. That a shy timid aviary bird can
indeed bond with one that treat him as equal and
patient and can be a companion bird. That they
deserved more than just being kept in a cage or an
aviary.

Do remember that Yingshiong was old when he came to
me. You need not go and get a young bird to do what we
have done. You can do what I have done or even better
from the reports I left behind.

Perhaps I should not have tried it with Yingshiong at
all. In which case, no one in the world would have
guessed that a shy timid aviary bird is capable of
bonding to be a companion bird. Yingshiong also would
not have rediscovered flight and entralled all of you
with his behaviour , antics , mischief, love, music
and most of all, his magic.

In a few days, I will be working and living in another
part of the world. With the fear of bird flu, it is
obvious I cannot think of taking YS with me. My wife
will not be joining me there as there will be
restrictions on her there that she will not be used
to.

I hope you enjoyed our accounts and will look on your
birds with a different light, be their beaks be hook
or straight.

I am sorry in the short time I have left, I might not
be able to answer any of you. I have many things to
arrange in this short time left. But I do not think it
right for me to go without a word.

You know I yearned to be back with Tinkerbell. This
road I take may lead me indirectly back to her again.

You understand now why I decided not to go ahead and
re-attempt with the harness recently. I knew YS will
be more receptive the second time. But I knew I would
not have the time to follow through. I also had to
test out other parameters if YS is to be looked after
by my wife Joy. I knew there was this coming change
but it was not firm until last night.

Videos of Tinkerbell and Yingshiong Singing

To all friends of Tinkerbell and Yingshiong,

My wife uploaded a few videos. Those are old videos of Tinkerbell and of scenes in Taiwan. You can also see Yingshiong singing and display.

That can be access via
http://shimmertje.livejournal.com/79634.html

I cannot see any of them as I am in Riyadh, Saudi
Arabia.

Perhaps you might find those videos interesting.

Very OT - Sheep head and camel milk

The last Saudi friday weekend of 25 Aug was likely to
be the last trip we all be making into the desert
around Riyadh.


You might find "Sheep head and camel milk" to be
interesting. If you have delicate stomach, you might
not wish to read

Back to birds and Yingshiong again

http://shanlung.livejournal.com/2006/09/14/

The re-acquaintance with YS and persuading of him that
I am ok to be with.

This friday morning, he even flew to me over
intermediate distance as well.

I will be going to Brisbane Australia next week for a
couple of weeks. I will lay some flowers for Steve in
Beerwah.

If any birdie folks in and around Brisbane are free,
it will be nice to meet you over a beer or two. Drop
me an email.


Warmest regards

Shanlung

new videos of Yingshiong
Hi folks,

Here are some more videos taken by my wife that she posted up on Youtube.


Shama gathering at Jurong East.

She came with me to the Friday shama gathering at Jurong East about 3 weeks ago. She took this video of
those shamas singing. They even had this female shama hung in a corner to get those male shamas to try to sing better.

I thought they would be singing better than what they did with so many of shamas there.

I went again to the shama gathering at Bishan on Wednesday night 4 nights back. There were more shamas at Bishan
than in Jurong East. But the performance was about the same.
