    Hi, I have enjoyed your bird talk articles for the past 10 or 15 years. I have been owned by several birds over the past 35 years. I currently have in my flock the sweetest Umbrella Cockatoo, and two TAG’s One of the Grays is over 50 years old and can almost carry on a conversation. I got all my current birds from people who couldn’t take care of them any more or they were biting their owners. Using your ideas and being attentive to their body language I have made them or rather they trained me to handle them they way they like me to. The three birds have totally personalities and give me hours and hours of enjoyment.
    I take at least two of my birds into local schoold and libruarys and show them off and let people know what wonderfully intellengent companions they are.
    I am so glad that Lefeber has picked you up and I’m looking forward to learning more about birds.
    Thank you.
