      @Luke Godden I dunno man.. i'm more prone to coming for melons than birds any day unless your just out of the closet and don't understand proper etiquette yet. LOL

      Question, when the bird hopped from your hand and left the tail feathers pointed downward, is it a conscious effort being made to do so or just a result of the hop itself because of body structure? Oh, put something under your melons to keep them off of the ground or they'll rot on you. Your cornses look fine.

    Look at thaaaaat , 2:03 moment of glory , of freedom, of spreading those beautiful wings and taking to d skies , the flex and smooth sweep of air the wings make in one perrrrrfect synchronous motion is beauty to the eyes.Thanks for the great vdo 👍👍👍👍👍☺😊☺😊☺

    Destin := the transition from vertical takeoff to horizontal flight , reduce the drag by keeping the tail straight at the ground with the AoA being very steep in to begin with and the air density being xyz and the air temp being x degrees +the angular momentum of each of those 10 secondary feathers being crossing and ....and...and .....☺😊

      good video! I especially like that it is 4 minutes. Not that I don't like your longer videos, but man, "everything" on Youtube is 10 minutes these days... "aint nobody got time for that"

                    To the bird it’s probably like us humans getting abducted by aliens

                                        Both life and nature take great pride in ignoring your production schedule. But if you can adjust to theirs, they’ll both give you some of your best content.

                                                      God, I love life sometimes.

                                                        Try to get some black dirt, some super rich soil...or add a lot of the watering you mentioned you may have overdone, the south, black soil is some of the best for corn...

                                                        Outside THAT comment, I've watched this video a couple times over the past year, and even though I've known the way a bird takes off, flies, and lands, since I was a kid and learned all this plus how to fly ((planes, of course to those that might want to play with my words, haha (flight has always been a love of mine)), it's still awesome to watch in super slow-mo now and again....looking forward to more like this...
