Default Bird Fair!

DH, a friend of mine, and I went out to a bird fair a few towns over today. Well, actually there were 2 bird fairs in the same town on the same day for some reason--one had more stuff and the other had vets giving seminars--we went to both.

We saw some really cool birds, including species I hadn't seen in person before. I also splurged on some unusual toys and got some supplies to try my hand at making some of my own toys. I attended a talk by an avian vet on foraging and enrichment and got some advice from said vet on Solo's husband hating issues. I even decided to become a member of our local bird club for a year and see how it goes. They have seminars given by avian vets from zoos, yearly field trips, are involved in conservation, etc. I had always thought it was a breeder club but apparently they really encourage pet owners to become members-should be interesting.

Anyhoo, I just wanted to share. I know we have some bird owners on here and it was a good way to spend a Saturday (plus the birds have some extra toys to destroy!)
