One of her favorite tricks is the "raptor" command, and she's very good at it. Nathan says "raptor", and she raises her wings.
It is amazing to see the work that Nathan has done with Azul in just over 2 weeks. It is obvious that Azul likes him very much, and that the feeling is mutual. Nathan knows how to be firm and set boundaries with the big birds, and at the same time is very affectionate with "Azzy". She loves kiwis, and Nathan reports that on at least one occasion she escaped from her cage by opening the food door, walked into his bedroom, and said "kiwi". Would you believe... all this from a bird that was destined for sanctuary??!!
Another favorite is the "destroy" command. Nathan gives her a toy and says "destroy" - and that's exactly what she does! By the time I'd left, she had made a good start on both of Christine's toys... Hopefully the big wood toy will last longer than the duck.
