Village Venture

The last Saturday in October our town has huge fair with hundreds of vendors. In the morning Matilda and I went down town to look around and do a little shopping. Earlier in the morning they had had a costume parade. We missed that, but I saw quite a few people in costume.

A lot of people bring their dogs to Village Venture. I ran into two other people with their labradoodles. A man was selling these dogs.

At noon I took Matilda home and then came back to Village Venture to work at the Audubon Society Booth.

We were raising funds for Wild Wings of California which rehabilitates injured birds and releases them to the wild. Some birds have problems that would prevent them from functioning in the wild. These birds are kept and become very fine ambassadors for their species. The booth always attracts many visitors. The birds are amazing.

This is Adonis, a Peregrine Falcon.

Red-tailed Hawk

This is Andrew, a Great Horned Owl.

This is Timmy, A Harris's Hawk.

At the end of the day the birds return to the San Dimas Nature Center.
