Siesta Sanctuary to visit Dexter library
DEXTER — On Saturday, Nov. 23 at 1 p.m. Siesta Sanctuary of Harmony will be bringing live parrots to the Abbott Memorial Library and presenting a free program on the care and welfare of these amazing birds.
In 2006 Margaret and Fritz Buschmann founded the non-profit Siesta Sanctuary as a home for parrots who have been displaced and need permanency.
Parrots are wild animals that live 30-80 years. They are very intelligent and social and, in the wild, thrive as part of a flock. Seldom can humans accommodate a pet through all the family life changes in 80 years. The Buschmanns have made it their mission to recreate the flock for parrots that have had their human flock disrupted.
For more information, please call 924-7292.
