      and 2nd Recommendation by Ann Mottet:  “I  took my canary to her because he was losing some feathers above his beak and I was worried that perhaps it was Mites.   She was excellent.   Very thorough; obviously very comfortable with birds and knowledgeable about birds; explained her thinking and conclusions well and gave me a number of options on how to proceed.   She’s an excellent observer and communicates well and also gave me tons of information in a non-judgmental way.  Answered all my questions. I highly recommend her.  Also took her time and was not rushed!  Please post this and you are welcome to use my name.”
