Macaws are Rare and Expensive in Australia so I had my Aviator Harness 1 Year Before I Adopted my Blue & Gold Macaw.

Testimonial:
Blue & Gold Macaw
Melbourne, Australia

I think about thanking you every day when I pop in the Bird Sitter DVD before shooting out for work.

A long, long time ago, I bought a harness for a Blue and Gold Macaw that I hoped to own one day. Suffice it to say, approximately 1 year after buying my first parrot item I came to care for Annie, my Blue and Gold Macaw. (I am from Australia and macaws are rare and expensive here.)

I am sure you probably get tons of emails regarding the quality of your product, but I wish to add my bit too! Especially since I had used the Feather Tether Harness previous to The Aviator. Good God! Your Aviator Bird Harness is absolutely amazing. I love the elastic shock cord, the fact that the external part of the harness is smooth/continuous, that is the attachment between the straps is not as accessible to curious beaks, and that the material has stood up to Annie’s monstrous beak! In a way I am glad that I tried a crap (pardon the language, no better term) one before yours as I know how brilliant yours actually is.

It was not until I purchased The Aviator Flight Line and The Bird Sitter DVD that I became aware of The Parrot University and The Aviator Harness.

As soon as the package arrived I popped on the instructional DVD (I also love looking at other birds – macaws are rare in Australia) and learnt sooo much. Your DVD was awesome as well, after watching it; I realized that I have made many errors with Annie and the crappy Feather Tether harness. I just wish I had seen it before I ever introduced Annie to any harness.

I made the mistake of buying Annie a green Aviator Harness, which is the same color as the feather tether, which I used to terrorize her. Thanks you for exchanging it for a purple harness for free.

Now I often take Annie (B&G macaw) out for a forage. She wears The Aviator so I can reach her in the small trees I let her climb out of the reach of puppies that sometimes spook her. Our park hangout is next to a road, and once she got excited when she saw we were nearing our car and leapt out of my hand at just the same time a car drove by. My heart leapt when I got a vision of her being hit by the car but thankfully when I looked down, she was flapping her wings about 30cm above ground bouncing on the end of the cord. I must add that I was using the harness correctly and had the strap properly around my wrist. If I was still using the Feather Tether that does not have a shock cord like The Aviator, she could have been hurt even without touching the car.

I know it has been a lengthy email, but I wanted to congratulate you on your wonderful product and to give you real examples of how the wonderful traits and qualities of your product help us parents and birds. Once again, well done and best regards,

Meriem & Annie

A Blue and Gold Macaw wearing a bird harness gazing out over the river is much safer that she would be in the Jungle. Wild macaw life expectancy is only about 12 years while in a home environment 50 is expected

Melvin is breaking the rules. He has the wrist strap in his hand instead of around his wrist. If this Blue and Gold spooks and flies he may be surprise when the lead slips out of his hand

From the safety of the dock and with The Aviator Bird Harness Annie can enjoy a day at the park

This Blue and Gold Macaw is perched on a railing overlooking the river. From this profile we can see how nice the Aviator Flight Harness fits. The flexible material extends below the crop and the lead coming from the belt extends about 18 inches before it turns into a safety shock cord

Meriem is a very proud mom holding her precious B&G Macaw. They are so rare in Australia that there cost rivals the price of a Hyacinth Macaw in the US and Europe

Without the safety of a bird harness this Blue and Gold would not be able to forage for her favorite wild nut. Notice the point where The Aviator lead turns into a shock absorbing leash is placed away from the beak to avoid chewing issues.
