July 2014

We have just returned from our annual meeting with "Wild Birds Unlimited." It is a great opportunity to meet with other store, learn new techniques and find out what is coming up with the franchise for the next year. Every year it is in a different US city and, in our three years with the franchise, we have seen some fascinating cities: San Antonio, Texas; Savannah, Georgia; Indianapolis, Indiana. So when we learned that this year's meeting was in Pittsburgh, it was not greeted with delight. Steel town..Dirty...Smoky City..these were some of the thoughts running through our mind when we thought of Pittsburgh.

 

We were so wrong.

 

     
 Pittsburgh and some of it's bridges  1880 Historic Row House  )

Pittsburgh is a lovely, green and very historic small city. It was voted one of the ten most liveable cities in the US. It has a thriving cultural centre, bridges everywhere you look (the city is surrounded by three rivers so bridges are important), great restaurants and lots of trees.

 

   
 T-Rex at Carnegie Museum Natural History  

 

It has several museums founded by the Carnegie Family; we only saw the Museum of Natural History which was fascinating. The National Aviary is also located here. They house about 600 birds, both exotic and endangered, and their main focus is to reintroduce these bird species back into the wild.

   Conservancy Gardens  Conservancy Gardens & Sklyline

 

Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is another wonderful place to wonder. Beautiful flowers abound both outside in the gardens and inside the glass conservatory. Birds and butterflies love the flowers; we watched several American Goldfinches feasting on the seed heads of the Black-eyed Susan plants.

 Forest at the Spruce Flats Bog & Wildlife Area  

 

And the surrounding countryside is not what is normally expected as well. Rolling hills, dense woods filled with oaks and sycamores (and other trees I don't recognize) and wonderful bird life.

 

Yes, Pittsburgh is one of those "little gems" that make travel so much fun.

 

 Bird of the Month

This month, after seeing so many wonderful, different birds both at our property in the Cariboo and in Pittsburgh, I decided that ALL BIRDS will be featured this month. From the large to the small, we love and treasure all.
