I have always liked bird magic,in fact I used to have the Tony Clark VHS videos but my mother would never let me keep and doves. She said that they were "dirty animals" so I never go to put what learned in the videos into practice. My question is...
Are the bird vanishes/appearances limited to doves or can one use the more colorful parakeets?
I understand that doves are larger therefore are probably used more often, but can a harness be purchased for something the size of a parakeet?

Thank you Sir.

Next question...
Where do you get Doves?

I've been to all the pet stores in my area and have only seen cockatiels, parakeets, and finches.

Matthew, do not buy a dove from a pet shop. You have no idea of the history of the bird and they are not taken care of as well as they would be by a breeder or another magician. They are out to make money and that is all.

You need to do a search for breeders and look to other magician in your area that do dove magic.

I'm not raising them right now, but you could contact Dakota Rose here on the Café. He's a great guy and raises perfect birds for magic.

Here's link to breeders in Iowa that may be able to help you as well.

Thank you Sir.
Are there any sources other than Tony Clark that you recommend for learning the different aspects of Dove Magic?

There are many sources. Besides Tony Clark, try Andy Amyx- Doves 101, General Grants- How to make a living stealing, Greg Frewin complete course in dove magic, Marian Chavez- Encyclopedia of Dove magic.
