Dr. Scott Echols
Avian Studios, LLC was founded by Dr M. Scott Echols, a board certified
avian veterinary specialist to create educational media that help people
improve and enrich the lives of captive birds.
Scott lives with his wife Layle (also a veterinarian) and
practices in multiple locations in the United States. His diverse
interests include bird medicine and surgery, art, making educational
movies, playing guitar, outdoor activities, nutrition and building
sustainable positive benefit business.
He received the 2005 Ted Lafeber International Avian Practitioner of the
Year award, the 2007 Texas Non-Traditional Species Veterinarian of the
Year award, and he has had two original watercolor paintings (‘Two
Collared Aracaris’ (pictured
right) and ‘Archaeopteryx’) appear on the
cover of the international Journal
of Avian Medicine and Surgery.
Scott is an Adjunct Professor at Texas A&M College of
Veterinary Medicine, a past President for the Association for Avian
Veterinarians, a frequent lecturer at multiple universities and
conferences in the US and abroad, as well as author and filmmaker.
After completing a bird medicine and surgery residency with Dr Brian
at the Medical Center for Birds in Oakley, California, Scott became the
Director of Avian Medical and Surgical Services at Westgate Pet and Bird
It was at this time that he added film to his efforts. Since then his
film work has been centered on providing teaching videos to other
veterinarians and bird owners. His focus on teaching foraging techniques
to improve the lives of pet birds along with his short movie ‘Captive
Foraging’ have gained him international attention.
Most recently, Scott and his mentor Brian Speer have developed a
consultation and surgery business that provides veterinary bird care
services throughout North America.
