"    In 2012 I wrote an article for an African zoo website in answer to questions about the terrible bites which can be inflicted by misunderstood Meyer's Parrots.  At that time, I introduced the Precious Press, a technique I had invented decades earlier and had named after a gentle, kind female Meyer's Parrot I had raised for years who had never bitten anyone.
  When a Meyer's Parrot begins biting, the Precious Press is administered by simply placing a thumb and index finger on either side of the bird's head, just behind the eyes, with gently-increasing pressure until the parrot releases its hold.  This action releases endorphins into the bird's bloodstream, much in the way grasping a young kitten by the back of the neck, or gently rubbing large circles on the shoulders of a nervous foal, calms it down.  The Meyer's Parrot will calm down, release its grip, become trance-like, and tend to forget why it was biting in the first place.  Instead of perpetuating a negative experience of punishment, the experience, instead, becomes one of respect for the human.
  I am an avian behaviorist, and am overjoyed that the scientific community has finally recognized animal/bird/human intercommunication as a recognized science.  I, for one, have been communicating with non-human creatures since before I could communicate with my own species.  It was formerly called animal whispering, but I call myself a non-human interpreter.  Since creatures do not necessarily need spoken language to communicate, but can also use body language or the powers of the mind, I have used the telephone, email, photos, and pieces of property belonging to the creature to diagnose problems between the creature and its human companion.
  It has been my life-long mission to mend misunderstandings between humans and their companion creatures so that fewer of them face devastating permanent separations when the creature is given away to someone else.  The wounds from this one action never heal.  If I can be of assistance, please give me a try.  My services are free or by donation.  I am a non-profit organization.
  Thank you, and may God bless your creatures and you!
