THE PREZ SEZ
We made it through the wet Memorial Day weekend holiday, at least the flowers are beautiful, and the hummingbirds love them. Hopefully you had a chance to see a few (both flowers and hummingbirds). Now if we can get to some warm weather it will help as the birds start to molt.
Speaking of molting, the feathers are flying around here. There must be something interesting we could do with all these lovely colored feathers; do you have any ideas? A cool bath water is a big help getting the birds through this tough time. I use a tablespoon of mouthwash to a gallon of water every several days. How about you? Special care needs to be taken at this time when the birds are at their weakest time of the year.
Prayers are needed for our country with what our families are going through from politics, school shootings and illnesses. Chuck and Nina are slowly getting better, it is a hard one when your life has revolved around birds, it can be hard to move on. Beth and Bill are slowly getting better with time, prayers appreciated.
Hope to see you at our next meeting either in person or on Zoom. We hold both on Saturday, June 11th with the Board Meeting starting at 1:30 pm, Show Meeting at 2:00pm and the regular meeting at 2:30 pm.
Refreshments will be provided by Debbie and Cynthia. The program will be Randy Smith talking about how she got started in birds. Be ready to share what you do for your birds during molting season.
Blessings to all,
