I agree that our parrots should not be scared of us and that there are ways we can teach them to trust us. But I still think that different species and different individuals that might have had real bad experiences with humans do not react all the same. Some of them can be taught but, for others, the learning process might be, in itself, too stressful and the bird would do better not having to learn to be grabbed by the neck. Aside from that, I also don't think that every single person can be taught how to train properly -especially if we are talking about a rescued, aviary species which would require time, patience, acute observation and analytical skills as well as a certain empathy which not everybody has. You have a background on animal behavior, Michael, something that most people out there don't have and a subject of which they haven't the slightest idea what it means. I also don't think that this is a technique that every single person who has a parrot absolutely needs to know. Toweling is another story, though... everybody should learn how to towel a bird properly and without scaring the bird.
