By DICK POST ALGONA'S BIRD MAN i \. . i Well, now lhai most of us local writers seem to bs getting back to town from vacations, fishing trips, and what not, I'm going to slart the ball rolling again for you folks with some more of my bird lalk. J i • • '' Mu, I didn't have a vapation. Not what you cpuld call a vacation. I have been taking my shirt off these hot days, and as a result I've got a bcttcr.tan than moifet of the local boys I see returning from vacations. • H We have quite a few first-rale''birds now Hat ihe Post aviary. It's outdoors, you know, during this summer weather, and there's really some singing and chirping going on around our house. We hpve been teaching a lot of young .birds to eat. < Funny thing, these canaries and parrakeets have to be taught how Jo eat when they're old enough to get out of their nests. While they're in the nests the clu folks feed them—that is mama and papa canary or parrakeet. But now that this new crop of birds is getting into the -'wean- inf, stage', I've had my hands full with this eating problem. I've been slipping them cod liver oil, milk, bread and some ground-up feed. They are thriving on it, and now we are soon going to have another batch of high-grade birds for sale, Some are already sold. If you want a good canary or parrakeet drop out to the Post aviary and look them over. It's fun just to look, for free. Which brings me down io why I really do this writing. That's to promote ihe moving, crating and storage business..We have been humping right along during June and July—doing an awful lot of moving. Hugh has also bean busy with ihe crating de.parirneni. We even had a call from some local wag last week, during that 9!i degree weather, asking how much we'd charge to move him up to the North Pole. Matter of fact, we have done a lot of long-dis* tance moving, and have connections to move household goods anywhere in the world. Remember our phone number when you move, We aye on ihe job io give you an expert job, Everything insured while we have il-and ws get you there in appl* pie order.
