Comment from Rebecca Mikel

Just wanted to say thanks for hosting a great avicultural event.  We loved the location  & really appreciated all the help your people provided as we were unloading in the morning and reloading in the afternoon.  We can only imagine the time it takes to pull off an event of that size – you two were probably beat before the day even started, weren’t you???!
Hope the babies are doing fine for you — wanted to remind you to keep water in that little dish in the tray under the birds – for humidity.
