D20 Update

2/11 EDITED post per SOAR: Update on 'Decorah' [aka D20/male]
"Our ambassador-in-training 'Decorah' is almost one year old and it will be several years before he has a white head!
Decorah sits on the big shelf so he can look out the window. That is obviously more fun than sitting on the bow perch that doesn't have quite that view. The plan WAS to put bracelets / jesses on Decorah, however, he has about five tail feathers growing in and do not want to disturb or damage these n...ew feathers. We want a nice tail! These new feathers are only three to four inches long right now, so a couple more weeks to go at least.
In the meantime, click over to the SOAR home page and read about what training needs to happen for handler and ambassador-in-training, plus there is a photo album to view of some of the training / practice activities both educator and education bird need to do. ~Linette"
