In April, 2011 I contacted Capt Tut to consult with me on a 28 yr. old Yellow Nape Amazon that I recently acquired through my landlord. Because I knew the bird was mishandled I did not want to create any more problems or issues that he already had. My Yellow Nape was mistrusting of men, preferred women and did everything possible to intimidate anyone that came near him.
Capt. Tut took his time in explaning the grooming of the bird. This included drawn diagrams of various flight feathers, blood feathers, etc. In addition, he took his time sitting in the same room with the Yellow Nape and myself so the bird would get a chance to become acquainted with him. I was amazed by the knowledge that Capt. Tut had regarding these birds. In a short period of time, Capt. Tut had the Yellow Nape on his lap, petting him and stepping up on his hand. Considering the Yellow Nape's mistrust of men this was nothing short of a miracle.
The Yellow Nape now accepts men, no longer resorts to intimidation to gain control and my 11 year old grand daughter can even handle him.
I now have acquired two other birds via a death of a neighbor. Without the expert guidance of Capt Tut and I would have never been able to handle my Yellow Nape Amazon, let alone take on two additional birds.
Thanks to Capt. Tut's expert guidance, I now have 3 wonderful birds that I can take outside, walk on the beach with and share a football game with.
I highly recommend Capt. Tut to others and I feel that he is a bird's best friend.
