Home Depot in Weatherford has loaned us a "cherry picker" to place the net over the poles for the flight pen. The temperature is way down to 94 which is a 10 degree improvement. It is going slow but Jim, AJ and I are getting it done!! AJ keeps saying he is a falconer, not a carpenter, not a plumber, not a net pulling person. Very funny AJ, now stop talking and PULL. That is 200 pounds of net 12 feet in the air spanning 60 feet by 25 feet. If nothing else we will have a great batting cage.

Having lived in Sarasota for 35 years, I was familiar with this area and had known it to be The Pelican Man’s Bird Sanctuary. It was the largest Wildlife Rescue and Rehab Center in Florida. Their mission was:
After several years I have finally settled on one side of the clipping fence. At least in this case.
Most Parrot Owners probably think they know what a Step Up is, but do they really?
