Bird Fair & Auction

I'm finally going to my first bird fair!!
I'm REALLY excited.
Here on the homepage of the Bird Farm (they recently updated their site, it looks great) it explains the bird fair that I will be going to today. http://www.sugarcreekbirdfarm.com/

I'll be sure to take pictures and tell you all about it when I get back. I can't wait!!

Unfortunately, I only came back with a tiny bag of treats. :/
I went with my aunt. I was thinking about bringing home some finches, but I decided not to. My parents wouldn't be too happy.

I had a great time, though! It was VERY cool. I saw all kinds of birds. A golden conure was auctioned off at over $1200 I believe. Golden conures are quite rare, I hear. It was a gorgeous bird! I also got to see a whole load of baby amazons and cockatoos, tiny ones that hadn't grown in any feathers yet. They were adorable!!

There is another one of these in October. Since my first time was mainly just to look around, I think I'll actually plan on bringing some birds home next time, and know what I'll be looking for and such.

Sorry Daisy! No pictures. Left my camera at home.

Abby - I was at that bird fair last Sunday. I live in the Columbus area. Where are you? They did have a lot of birds for the auction but the one in Columbus last month had more vendors.

I will check in with you before I go to another bird event to see if you are going. Would be great to just say hello.

That would be awesome!! I'd love to do that.
This was my first bird event, the next one I know I'm going to is in October I think, which is the same as this one. I'm unaware of any others, so inform me when there are some!!
