The Big Bend Bird Club held the 17TH Annual Exotic Bird Fair and Festival at the North Florida Fairgrounds.
The two day event featured a variety of birds including parrots, love birds, cockatiels, and many other feathered friends.
Venders from across the nation were on hand to help local residents search for the bird that was a perfect fit.
Melissa Athanasiadias, a bird lover and owner, said, "We don't really have exposure to the variety of birds or the knowledge of how to take care of particular varieties. These people are experienced and they can give you the best information about the bird that is right for you."
The event also featured education exhibits, bird toys, food, cages, and much more.
