TEDxSydney - Josh Cook - The Bird Whisperer

Josh Cook is a 34 year old self taught avian behaviourist, specialising in the art of free flight, a relatively new concept within aviculture and companion bird ownership. His work is based on the formation of a strong understanding and rapport between bird and owner and a bird's natural ability to form a home range. Josh has kept and worked with birds since early childhood and has turned his hobby into a career through the knowledge he has acquired. Over the past five years he has worked to establish a free flying flock of exotic parrots consisting of 30 macaws, a breeding colony of 15 eclectus parrots, 8 red tail black cockatoos and several other species of parrot. ------------------- TEDxSydney 2011 took place on Saturday 28 May 2011 at CarriageWorks.

About TEDx, x = independently organised event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organised events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organised events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organised TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organised.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
