Ken Gilliland's Products In Renders

Glaucous Gulls from an older Seabird set.
PoserPro11 render in Firefly.



Ken, I don't know what I am about to say will be of any use, but here we discovered that the sound of a vacuum encourages our birds to want a shower. I can't say if there is a reason for this behavior, but it works for us and is very entertaining the watch my macaw beg for a shower....lol I keep saying I'm going to film it, but neither I or my wife can hold a camera still any more....

It does help, she lifts her wings like she wants a shower, but when she discovers its just the vaccum, it time to attack

For many years I had a sulfur crested, they are definitely different for sure, don't ask me why but even after all the bleeding fingers, torn shirts and years spent teaching my wife how to defuse his sneak attacks I really enjoyed his company. He was the only bird I have had that was 110 volt proof a fact he proved time and time again by biting through extension cords...lol Yes angel was touchy about showers too as I recall and would generally find something to hide under. Angel gave me all kinds of ideas for renders and stories with no end of exacerbation for my wife...lol


:yeahthat: That is a good reminder from Ken.

He certainly does have some amazing birds!
