This month's theme:
FAIR-FEATHERED FRIENDS!!

I'm still pretty new around here so I thought this month should be inspired by things in my part of the world :)


Here in Minnesota, the week before our long US weekend is all about two things: The State Fair, and shopping for back to school clothes! All my coworkers are talking about the outfits their kiddos are planning for outings to the Great Minnesota Get-Together and the first day of school!

And of course, like parents all over, many of my coworkers think their kids' outfits are eccentric and out of place, but in-person middle school in 2022 is a whole new scene after 2 years of online school, and the kids know they're right on trend!

Show me your birds with their feathers out of place, or using their feathers as decoration or a toy!

If your bird is one of the cool kids that always looks perfect, I'll also take anything that makes you think of going to a Fair or Festival!

Here's Cotton, my feather-destructive little man always working on his look:

OFFICIAL ENTRY :)

My boy Fang is usually the picture of satorial elegance in understated monochromatic tones. Except for this particular occasion when a loose floofie somehow managed to get itself stuck to his crest!

I think he looks rather proud of his fashion statement actually, and so he should be! πŸ’–

@LaManuka Fang is setting the bar, er, feather, high! Such a delightfully jaunty look! πŸ₯°

@LouieTheCockatiel What a perfectly balanced accessory! I love that this is what you woke up to 😍

@PippTheBananaBirb But of course! Gertjie has a tiara to rival the cockatiels 😁

I thank you, and Fang thanks you too! He always did have an amazing ability to accessorize - he gets feathers stuck up there all the time, I have NO idea how he does it but I love it when he does!🀩
