An example of ambient attention is if you are watching television and your bird is on the T-stand near you.
Ambient: (adj) Around or surrounding. This word is used to describe a type of attention you can give to your pet bird. It is not direct attention but rather when your pet bird is in the same area as you are, where he or she can observe you.
Watch this video on taming a pet cockatiel, which includes an example of ambient attention.
