“90% of communication is body language”, That’s our main foundation here at Living with Birbs, to look, listen and learn through our experiences.
Albert Mehrabian, author of Silent Messages, conducted several studies on nonverbal communication. He found that 7% of any message is conveyed through words, 38% through certain vocal elements, and 55% through nonverbal elements (facial expressions, gestures, posture, etc).
As a mother of 4 children, parenthood has taught me that the above is very true at least in my experience. I wanted to find out if that applies to the bird world and if so how far could I take it and how does that training translate between tame and untame birds of different backgrounds.
A firm believer in energy and a connection to the Mother Earth, I’ve always had an affinity with animals and have grown up with all kinds of different species, and spent years of ownership living and learning through my own research and mistakes.
Due to a collagen disorder and an autoimmune disease I have been left a full time wheelchair user and spend 90% of my time stuck at home due to care needs, making the best of this I have decided to grow my flock of funny, crazy companions and share my progress with you all.
