Bird lovers of all ages will marvel at a great horned owl, a barred owl, a screech owl and a northern saw-whet owl. These Connecticut natives--all non-releasable due to injuries--are fascinating to observe and photograph up-close, and you'll learn about their lives and habits and the threats they face in the wild during an 11 a.m. presentation.
Parrot Club members will also display their exotic birds during this 16th annual event, and at 2 p.m., you can hear these feathered creatures' intriguing stories. Bird owners will also have the chance to hear from Dena Tucker, owner of Creative Bird Toys (creativebirdtoys.com) at 12:30 p.m. about how to evaluate bird toys and parts to ensure pets' well-being and safety.
Birdie Bash 2017 also features a marketplace, the ideal place to shop for birds and bird owners on your holiday list, plus exhibits and opportunities for both experienced and prospective bird owners to learn about adopting and caring for parrots and other pet birds. Refreshments and fundraiser tickets will be sold. Non-members may not bring birds to the event.
