March 25th 1st ever Chili Contest. This fundraiser was held on behalf of the Adopt-A-Bird
Committee and helped raise funds for the necessary vet funds when rescuing parrots. The
Alaska Bird Club is the only parrot rescue group on file with the Anchorage Municipality
Animal Care and Control Center.
The Alaska Bird Club's booth at the Friends of Pets Event at the Alaska Pacific University campus.
This event is put on by Friends of Pets to raise awareness of the different kinds of pets people
have and how to take care of them, and the different groups out there to help support them.
The cage on the table has a sign on it that says "This cage is an exhibition cage only and is not
suitable to hold a bird this size in it. This type of bird lives in a cage ten times this size."
Yes that's a tree in Leanna's house, made from various neighbors' birch trees
(but don't thell them!). She starts with a birch branch as the trunk of her "tree" and then
attaches perches. The base is a christmas tree holder or a bucket filled with cement. If you build
one, make sure your base is heavy enough to support your birds!.
What happens when harnessing a bird goes terribly, terribly wrong.
