The date for this fun event is scheduled for Sunday, September 26, 2015, at Mohawk Park, Tulsa OK.

People usually show up around 1:30 to visit, and we will have a short business meeting at 2:00. If you want to bring your bird with you, we request it be brought in a travel carrier or cage or on a harness for safety. Also, a lawn chair and your favorite side dish.

Come join us!

The October 25th monthly meeting for OAS features Dr. Paul Welch, one of our favorite avian veterinarians.  The meeting starts at 2:00, but you can come socialize and eat with us before and after Dr. Welch gives us information from the AAV conference, and answers those question or concerns we have about our pet birds.

Plan to gather at the Hardesty Library, 8316 East 93rd Street, Tulsa.  See you there!

July 27, 2014 – OAS Monthly Meeting

by

 

 

Dr. Carol Best of Best Friends Veterinary Hospital is our speaker.

Don't miss the popular Dr. Best from Best Friends Veterinary Hospital as she teaches us Avian First Aid Techniques!  Ever wonder what you would do if your bird chose a weekend or holiday to have an accident or illness?  Come to our meeting tomorrow and find out.

Meet your fellow OAS members and guests at the Hardesty Regional Library, 8316 E 93rd St, Tulsa, OK.  We start gathering at 1:30, and the short business meeting begins at 2:00.  Then Dr. Best will let us know what we need to know for a bird-related emergency.

At this meeting we will also need to discuss who will do what at the September 6 Bird Fair.  It is important that all members participate in producing this well attended, income-producing event.  It's not fair that only a few hearty, yet very tired, members bear the full burden to put on this event twice a year.  Think about how you can spend a couple hours helping with set-up, the raffle table, the club table, admissions or working with the vendors and clean-up.  Every little bit helps and is appreciated.

See you - Tomorrow!! - Sunday, July 27.

June 22, 2014 – Tea for ‘Toos – (and other birds, too!)

by

For our June 22nd meeting, we're bringing in expert Jason Crean to speak to us about how we can better care for our birds.  I know you'll want to attend.

As aviculturists, we tend to focus a great deal on nutrition in the form of food.  But what do our birds drink in the wild?  They don't drink purified water... far from it.  They actually drink tea in the form of rainwater catches, full of important compounds leeched from plants into these pools.  This talk looks at the different health benefits of tea and how they can help you and your birds go from surviving to thriving.
