Trained Hummingbirds

The attached photos say it all about training animals.  Using patience and a step-by-step approach, this woman has accomplished what seems virtually impossible: training hummingbirds to eat out of her hand. 

This is instructive for people who are facing any sort of challenge with an animal, human included.  It's rare indeed when the proper mix of love, understanding, and rewards--not to forget *patience*--won't channel behavior in directions deemed appropriate.

In the case of Natural Scratch, it's redirecting a cat's natural need to claw to an approved target.
