SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Fans of feathered friends flocked to the fairgrounds for a bird-fest.
Bird lovers could find all types of species including macaws, lovebirds, finches, parakeets, cockatoos and much more at the Winter Bird and All Pet Fair.
Not only could you find birds but supplies such as toys, food and cages too.
Shelia Ivanoff of the Missouri Pet Bird Club said several Midwest states hold these fair several times a year.
She adds birds make great companions if they’re treated and trained the right way.
“They are very smart,” Ivanoff said. “If someone tells you’re a bird brain you should feel good because that birds really have a lot of intelligence for the small brain they have.”
