Fancy Birds and Parrots @ the Library Partnership
Wednesday, July 26th
Come visit with some fancy exotic birds and parrots, including some babies. The Gainesville Bird Fanciers and US Parrots, North Florida's resource for parrot and bird information, will be bringing some of their favorite fine feathered friends to "show and tell" and possibly even some live performing.
Learn some of the wrongs and rights of owning these sometimes challenging creatures and hear real life stories from experienced pet owners and breeders, and you will have the opportunity to come up close and personal with both adult and baby parrots.
BEE HAPPY: Come meet the Beekeepers! @ the Library Partnership
