Towson, Maryland: Chop Chop! With Patricia Sund. First and St. Stephen's United Church of Christ; 6915 York Road. 10-12. Event description: "Chop” is a feeding concept. We can make a huge batch of a fresh vegetable mix for our birds, package it up in baggies or plastic containers in an amount that will feed all types of birds in one meal, and then freeze it for reuse as needed. For our day-to-day, "Chop” is easy, fast, convenient and consistently healthy. It is as good as what we put into it. Buy what’s fresh, in season and available and you will learn that Chop works because not only is it good for your birds, in the long run, it’s easier for the caregiver too. Patricia Sund is the author of the Memo to Parker and Pepper column, and a long-time friend to Phoenix Landing. Contact: Phoenix Landing; phoenixlanding.org

These physical and social attributes still govern how a parrot adapts to their lives in our homes. Do you consider your parrot’s perspective in your daily routines and interactions? Perhaps sometimes you just don’t understand each other because you see things differently? Let’s talk about life from a "Parrot’s Point of View.” Contact: Phoenix Landing; phoenixlanding.org
