Breakfast with the Birds

June 14th 2007

We recently received an email from Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City, which I learned from the email is only one of two public aviaries in the United States (the other is in Pennsylvania), and the email was an invitation for the annual “Breakfast with the Birds.”

The “Breakfast with the Birds” is a fun fund-raising event to help the Aviary feed and keep the birds healthy and happy.

Did you know it’s not just bird seed that the Aviary needs, although it costs over $50,000 annually to feed the birds, the Aviary also needs to hire skilled aviculturists and trainers, and acquiring that skill takes no small amount of funding.

When you add in medications, check-ups, and top-flight vet care for the feathered creatures, it’s another $35,000 a year.

The Aviary is not only a neat place to visit, but the Aviary can be traced all over the community. In addition to the 70,000 annual visitors, the birds are taken to schools, scout groups, and other organizations, reaching another 50,000 people.

A unique and neat place to visit, and one we all can support at the “Breakfast with the Birds” on Saturday, June 16, from 9 am to 1 pm at Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City.
