Connecticut Parrot Society to Host 11th Annual Featherfest
Susan Chamberlin, Avian speaker and columnist and Mary-Beth Kaeser, raptor rehabilitator and owner of Horizon Wings, are featured presenters.
For some bird owners, especially new ones, it is pretty hard to find quality supplies, advice, and information for your feathered friend in a mostly dog and cat world. If you can relate to, or just love birds, you don’t want to miss the Connecticut Parrot Society’s (CPS) 11th annual Featherfest on March 24, 2018.
Featherfest is CPS’ annual bird fair at the Elks Club in Middletown, CT that includes educational speakers, bird-related vendors, and live birds (not for sale). The event is open to the public from 10 am to 5 pm, and admission is only $5 per person (children under 12 and CPS members are free).
This year’s educational speakers include the following:
10:30 am -“Bird Brains” with Mary-Beth Kaeser, Horizon Wings, a non-profit birds of prey rehab center.
1:30 pm - “Planning for Your Bird’s Future” with Susan Chamberlin, avian columnist for publications including Bird Talk, speaker and owner of 14 Karat Parrot.
Other highlights of the event include: door prizes, teacup auction, and a variety of vendors.
Featherfest is an event all bird lovers do not want to miss. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the conservation efforts for parrots and other birds in the wild, and offers great resources for parrot owners and parrot fans.
