Last week Harry and I were lucky enough to meet up with friends Maevonne (Benji’s human) and Kelle and John (of Cliff and flock) at Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary. It’s always lovely to spend a day with friends, those with and without feathers.
Yesterday we went to the Free Flight Exotic Sanctuary Brunch with the Birds.
Midori (who is sponsored by Cooper’s friends, Kelle and John).
*I can never remember which Macaw is which. Maybe this year I’ll get them straight.
Here’s a little clip of Baby Bird (who is sponsored by Cooper’s friend, Jan) in action.
Yesterday we went to a fundraiser for Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary. The fundraiser was a 68th birthday party for Obi (an Umbrella Cockatoo).
We now sponsor Ozzie, too. Who could resist this little cutie?
Happy birthday Obie!
Yesterday we went to Free Flight’s Brunch with the Birds. It was a beautiful day. It was good to visit with the birds and the people who work and volunteer at the sanctuary.
We visited the birds at the Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary today. They were having a holiday toy workshop where you could make toys for the birds.

It’s Giving Tuesday! Today is a great day to help others through the gift of your time, donations, goods or voice. One of Cooper’s favorite organizations is the Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary (where we found Sido). She also likes our local animal shelter (where we found Ozzie and Alfie).
