How to train your parrot: The man starting a free-flight movement

Brody Murray lets his pet parrot Roku fly freely in vast landscapes near Brisbane. Inspired by his videos on social media, other enthusiasts joined in.

Some say it's dangerous to let the parrots out of the cage, but Mr Murray says that with the right training and a strong bond, they will always come back.
