M.A.R.S. presents, “The Odd Couples”.
at Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary.Â Saturday was such a day.
What a storm we had!!!!!!!
Â Thursday March 31st, WOW!!!!!!!!, what a storm.Â Melbourne Avian Rescue Sanctuary spentÂ 6Â 1/2 hours without electric. Winds so strong thatÂ treesÂ cameÂ crashing down. One just missing the aviaries.
Â So as you can imagine, today has to start out on a good note. The work of clean up here at our rescueÂ will be a longÂ hardÂ one. The Macaws, Cockatoos andÂ Amazons in the aviary will have lots of entertainment from the humans today.
Â Chain saw definately need. Anyone have one to loan????????
Â Oh, did I mention a hearty breakfast for all the feathered members of M.A.R.S., and actually some left over for me. Â
Sunday morning coffee with some Saturday pics to view.
Saturday turned out to beÂ aÂ picture perfect day for visiting M.A.R.S.
We were pleased to have ample help fromÂ our volunteers Jane, Linden and Frank.Â Their amazingÂ team work helped facilitate a quick feed andÂ clean up.Â This allowedÂ all of usÂ quality timeÂ to spend with our visitors, and providedÂ someÂ great one on oneÂ time with the cockatoos, macaws, amazons and other avianÂ membersÂ who reside hereÂ in ourÂ Florida Parrot Rescue M.A.R.S.
So have another cup of coffee and view our Saturday the 12th photo albumÂ on our Facebook page.
Just a quick note, our new gallery of birds for adoption will be available this week. We will be updating our website. Also visit Petfinder and AdoptAPet.com.
Always take a closer look.
Sometimes we all have a tendency to look to quickly, and judge to harshly, without getting the full story.
Exactly what I did when first viewing this picture.
The subject matter jumped off the page, and I assumed the worst. Feathers of Cockatoos being used for fashion shoes, which of course was not the case at all. The designer used turkey and chicken feathers dyed in bright colors for high fashion shoe embellishment.
Although this was an eye catcher of an advertisement, I doubt if any of us will be slaves to this kind of fashion statement. Always remember to get the facts straight before jumping to the wrong conclusions.
