You came to my class last week. Can you come back in three years? Then my sister will be in fourth grade. I want her to enjoy you as much as I did.

BelleDear Birdman,

BonitaThanks for all you taught me. Instead of being a lawyer, I want to be a scientist. -- Fourth grader, Eno Valley School

Thank you!!! Science Night was a big hit largely because of you and your fantastic birds. So many families said they LOVED your presentation. I noticed that it was not only engaging and entertaining, but you wove in so many science tidbits that it fit perfectly with the science curriculum.

"This is the best day of my life" was spoken to a friend by one of your student volunteers following your presentation. Thanks for making him feel so special.

Thank you for making our Readathon extremely successful. Your theme - Reading gives you Wings to Fly - inspired our 550 children to read for interest, to read for purpose and just to read. From the parrot swooping over the children, to the memorable experience of children hosting a bird on their hands or to the experience of looking deeply into the eyes of an owl, this program was one that we will all remember for years.
-- staff, Frank Porter Graham Elementary, NC


Magical, mesmerizing, memorable----Birdman Dave came to our school and captured the hearts and minds of all our students, from three-years old to eleven. We could not have made a better choice for our school assembly.  -- staff, Episcopal Day School, Southern Pines

I had never before seen my 'sophisticated' fifth graders acting like wondrous second graders—just interacting and laughing and enjoying themselves.  -- Teacher, Randolph Elementary School, VA.

Dave Gulick’s shows are excellent! They are educational, relevant to the curriculum, hold the interest of the students and are extremely entertaining. What learning experiences! He is outstanding! -- Science Specialist

Graded on a scale of one to ten, EVERY evaluation we received on your program was a TEN. -- PTA, Estes Hills Elementary

You are a born teacher, as well as entertainer. Your manner and your enthusiasm enthralled the class. They learned so many lessons about the quality of life from you.
