June 13  - Sheila Blanchette, CPBT (certified avian behavior trainer/consultant) - Sheila will be talking about Case Study: Four Foster Birds - The Past, The Preparation, and the Post Story. These case studies are about interesting behavioral observations Sheila found while fostering four specific birds (out of 19 over the last 4 years!) Every bird has a tale, but these four stand out with their uniqueness and Sheila will share their stories with us and teach us a bit along the way!

Sheila completed her coursework/seminars and mentorship from the IAABC (International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants). She studied bird behavior with renowned animal behaviorist Lara Joseph (The Animal Behavior Center). In addition, she volunteers at the MSPCA - Nevins Farm (Methuen, MA) in the exotic bird section. After gaining the necessary experience, Sheila established her avian consulting business, Heart of Feathers Education, in 2015. She is a graduate of Roger Williams College and received her MBA from Endicott College. Her family includes a husband, fawn pug, 2 lorikeets, a lovebird (foster to adopt), and a Quaker parrot (recent foster to adopt).

We haven't had a behaviorist at the club in a long time and we're quite happy Sheila is willing to make the trip down to talk with us! Please come out for this special speaker!
