LoryLeague.org participated in the America's Family Pet Expo in Puyallup, WA in July 2011
We set up a Walk Through Aviary with 10 different species of Lories: Black Cap, Jobi, Yellow Bib, Duyvenbode, Cardinal, Dusky, Red Collared Forstein's, Rosenburg's, and Goldie's, and an Edward's Lorikeet came to visit.
People were allowed to feed them small pieces of fruit and take pictures.
We had handouts available with information about the different species, diet, and more.
Below is a slide show with a few pictures of the Walk Through Aviary and a few of the Lories
We hosted a Judged Hookbill Show which was the first time a bird show was ever held at the America's Family Pet Expo.
We had 12 exhibitors with 50 birds for the show which made it a major point show with SPBE. ( Society of Parrot Breeders & Exhibitors)
A rare Conclurry (Australian Parakeet) was entered for the first time in SPBE history.
A Duyvenbode Lory won 2nd Place in the show

We plan to participate in the pet expo again in November of 2012
