Window to the Wild: Simon & Lindsey McNeny


You have heard my son talking on my show over the years about homeschooling and his dreams.  Check out the broadcasts.

Recently married, (it was the Big Event of 2013), my son and his wife are stepping out of their comfort zone and entering the world of entrepreneurial-ship.

This week they made the first public move towards transforming their lives and heightening awareness of the wild life they are passionate about.

Their vision is to open people’s minds to the beauty that the wild has to offer and to make it more easily accessible with their creative displays of the exotic birds they carefully train by tapping into their natural behavior.

With their bird shows they will engage, inspire, entertain, and educate audiences beyond their wildest dreams.

After months of preparation they have launched their project at Indiegogo, a crowd funding site to help them raise the money to buy and train more birds so they can show up at your beach resort or park in the not too distant future.

Their company, Window to the Wild (WTTW) started to acquire exotic birds in June 2013.  They bought a pair of Blue and Gold Macaw hatchlings.  These birds have benefitted from positive reinforcement training from the start and when I watch them play with Simon and Lindsey it is obvious that they are happy, healthy and confident with their human parents.

My son and his wife are teaching their birds, Walter and Lemon, (named for Simon’s mentor at the theatre who passed away almost a year ago at the age of 52) to master their natural flying skills before commencing their training in earnest at an aviary then progressing to large outdoor venues in the local community of Dallas, Texas, where they currently live.

I hope you are inspired by the work they have done so far in their quest to live their dream and will support them in any way you can.

Visit their sites and follow them, tell your friends about this amazing venture and slip them a few dollars if you feel like feathering their nest and in my son’s words helping them to,

“Become Fully Fledged!”


May God be with you Simon and Lindsey.  I love you!
