This is such awesome news, we had to share…
One day miracles are already happening and we couldn’t be more excited. That’s right, we’re ALREADY getting success stories from people who got their One Day Miracles package in the mail earlier this week.
But I’ll let them tell their stories in their own words below:
Success Story #1 – Laura Rennie & Flock
‘I Realized That I Needed To Let
My Umbrella Cockatoo FAIL!’
One Day Miracles is an entertaining series that I could really relate to.
It features average families and birds and while watching each episode I was able to identify similar problems in members of my own flock of 6, and what I really liked was that I was able to go back and watch key segments again.
I have a rescue Umbrella Cockatoo called Dylan who has only this year regrown his previously chewed off flight feathers and had started to fly after being with me for a year and a half.
I could get him to fly from one T-bar stand to another on cue, but I was having problems getting him to fly to my hand. I realised that I was being too patient with him and not letting him “fail”.
I wasn’t backing off and letting him figure out he wasn’t doing what I wanted. I was standing there with my hand out, patiently waiting for him to fly onto me for ten minutes at a time, and I was also talking too much to reinforce him whilst he was stationary on the stand, the exact same way as Michele was.
I was thrilled with how quickly we progressed after I identified where I was going wrong and we are now working on his recall on a daily basis.
This series clearly explains how easy it is to build a trusting relationship with your bird and begin successful training by giving you the inside secrets. Dave and Jamie break own the techniques and help you to understand how to do things you would never have discovered on your own.
They help you identify your errors, correct them, and move forward smoothly and quickly.
There’s a really personal feel to this series and there’s something here for everyone at every level in this series and I’m sure every parent out there will be able to relate to the problems the birds shown here are experiencing.
One Day Miracles is, in my opinion the ESSENTIAL DVD series for parrot owners.
Thank you BirdTricks.com, for enhancing my skills and confidence as an owner, and for helping me enrich the lives of my birds.

‘I Trained My Bird To Spin In 10 Minutes!’
The One Day Miracles series does not pull any punches. If people need to be trained before the birds can be helped, then this is what happens, but appropriately and respectfully.
It was enlightening to see the difference between birds who had been formerly introduced to the methods employed by Dave and Jamie. If the birds were already clicker conditioned and target trained, the session could move ahead smoothly and easily. If the BirdTricks.com DVDs had been left on the shelf, the session was more basic.
After I watched The Picky Eater, episode 5, with Tiki learning the spin, I was able to teach my Kiki the trick in ten minutes as Jamie had graciously shared her mistake in training Tiki.
This was very illuminating for me, I was able to learn from her mistake, think the trick through and what I actually wanted Kiki to do before I started. The trick was then easy to teach.
The fact that she has been target trained also helped with the learning. She’s a happy, twirly bird now!
My favourite episode was ‘Fly To Me’, probably because that is the next thing we are going to learn.
Kiki flies to me, but I would like to formalise it. The stable step up was well explained and understandable, and allowing the bird to fail was shown as a positive, not a negative. I now know what to do to teach Kiki.
The series was very enjoyable to watch, and very informative. You make a great team and I hope all who participated and all who watch will learn to implement what is taught. I can see this being a very useful resource for anyone who wants a stronger, more trusting, and happier relationship with their bird.

‘My Parrot Is More
Motivated To Train With Me!’
I have a tendency to get excited during training sessions and when my parrot begins to learn a new trick, I would be motivated to move forward with training until my parrot gets the trick down 100%.
I would push with training too far rather than listening to my parrots body language and stop when my parrot chooses to stop with training. Too long of a training session can set your parrot back, so lesson learned.
After watching One Day Miracles, I shortened the training sessions, taking cues from my bird’s body language and I immediately noticed her motivation change dramatically.
She’s happier to train with me and she seems like she looked forward to training sessions.
Overall, this DVD series was VERY informative and full of learning materials which you can incorporate into your own training sessions. This DVD set does not “train your bird”, but it teaches YOU to become a more knowledgeable trainer in order for you to bring out the best in your parrot as well as having a great relationship and bond.
I highly recommend it!

‘After Only A Few Days, My Birds Are Happier
And We’re All Feeling More Confident!’
One thing that I love about the One Day Miracles DVDs is that us bird lovers get to see the Womach family’s bird training methods in action. It is visual proof that the suggestions they’ve been telling their fans for years work… even within 24 hours!
Also, every episode/story is so inspiring because we all want to have a better connection with our feathered children. The birds are just as eager as the humans to have a good relationship with each other.
It is easy to connect with these families and sympathize because we all have similar issues with our birds on some level, whether it is biting issues, screaming or relationship issues.
I have always been a bit smug about my relatively well-behaved Congo African Grey, Toki, and my Sun Conure, Luna. Both are approximately a year old and are absolute cuddle bugs.
But there are so many things that I should be doing with them; for example, I now see how important training is, and how a healthy diet can make a huge difference.
My favorite piece of advice from the program was “Every interaction is a training session.”
So for now, we are working on some serious touch training, and after only a few days, I’ve seen how happy we all seem to be. They are feeling confident, I feel confident with them, and we are able to communicate what we want and need from each other.
My favorite episode is Episode 4, “Raising Your Baby Right,” because you can see how eager Bradley and Brian, and their blue and gold macaw, Riley, are to play and live harmoniously.
And I also absolutely loved Episode 8 with Bruce and Chris and their Grey (plus, their Goffin and Cockatiel) because you can just see the love pouring from this bird and his owners. Jamie and Dave really seemed to help them communicate and become closer companions.
One Day Miracles is an incredible course because there is so much to learn from it, and it shows people from all different walks of life having a similar connection – a love for their parrots!
It makes a bird person like me feel all fuzzy inside. I want to squeeze and hug and love on my feathered children, and see them grow and flourish with me.
