Your efforts are truthfully futile if the camera and lens combo is any larger than a point and shoot or an iPhone...And then getting her to use more and more editing software..."Those convinced against their will, are of the same opinion still"...
More than enough people here have experienced the dire pain of trying to "introduce" the art of photography to a loved one, be it a mother, brother, wife or any one else that hasn't expressed a genuine interest in photography. It's a novel idea, but just to impractical to some.
If she has a real interest in birds, forgo the entire camera setup and get her a very nice pair of binoculars and a very detailed ornithological book that relatable to the local area she's in. And, "if" you were so inclined, spend the time with her and have our camera to take the images for her. In the event that she asks and inquires more about the photography aspect then, school her some and give her the opportunity to experiment with your rig!!!
