So you want to be a pirate, do you? Well, first you're gonna need an eye patch and a peg leg. And once you have both of those in place, you'll need an exotic bird to sit on your shoulder and sing clever songs about the devil and rum and the joys of pillage and plunder. But where can you find such a fine-feathered companion, let alone the supplies required to keep a pirate's best friend happy and healthy? You might want to begin your search at the Mid-South Exotic Bird Fair and supply sale, which is being held November 24th and 25th on the Macon Cove campus of Southwest Tennessee Community College. The bird fair promises an opportunity to meet bird breeders and to buy exotic birds from around the world, as well as a chance to find bargain-priced bird toys, books, cages, and feed. So whether you're an actual pirate or you just like cockatiels, parakeets, lovebirds, and finches, the Mid-South Exotic Bird Fair is the place to be.
