Hi Penny, All,
Thanks for the kind comments. As you found out, what I do is not so easy to describe in a word or two. Unfortunately, my detractors have succeeded in scaring off many loving bird owners that can't get close to their birds. This really hurts, since it keeps them from getting the techniques that can help them. If it were just a matter of bullying birds into submission, lots of people would be able to do it. What I do is more like leading a bird to the door that leads to peace and helping it go through.
I love doing what I do. I'm just sorry that so many people are scared away by the disinformation and demonization by my detractors. I wonder if they're so vocal because what I do doesn't work.... or because it does.
I'm just going to keep plugging away. The final arbitors are the hundreds of birds I have helped gain trust and live happily with their human companions. I know that 90 to 95 % of the birds that are in rescues because of fear/aggression issues, with the right techniques, can learn to trust again. I have done it time and time again.
Thanks again for your support and I hope you all can, one day, make it to a workshop and see for yourself. You'd be amazed at how the four hours seems to fly by.
All the best,
