June 26, 2022 – Sunday, 3:00PM – 5:00PM

Bird Toy Workshop 

Join us to assemble parrot foraging toys in the form of small paper boxes and paper lunch bags.  We’ve done foraging toys before and it was a big hit with parrots large and small. 

Boxes, bags and variety of different items to fill them will be provided.  Everyone is welcome to also bring items for foraging.  Such items may include plastic golf balls, party favors, card board pieces, nuts in the shell, or air-popped popcorn.  Just about anything considered safe for a human toddler is likely safe for a parrot.  

We’ll assemble toys for our own birds and some extra for the rescue parrots. 

Although the mask requirement at the Raymond G. Sanchez Community Center has been lifted, the membership voted to continue to meet at a private residence for now.  

Please refer to the May issue of Birdy Bytes (under the Media/Newsletters tab) for how to RSVP for the meeting and obtain the meeting place address.


Newsletter Editor’s Note: Computer failure lost a lot of files and the HDBC email list.  Reconstruction is in progress.  The June 2022 issue of Birdy Bytes is delayed.  Thank you for your patience.
