Storytime with Tracy Aviary: Helen and Matilda

24.03.2020
Sunday morning storytime - this one is for the littlest bird nerds out there... although I do have a feeling some of you young-at-heart might enjoy this too! Matilda, our red-tailed black cockatoo is very eager to help me turn the pages - which is quite possibly the cutest thing I've ever seen! Although I have to add a disclaimer that reading with Matilda means starting at the back of the book - she likes to turn pages from back to front (maybe it's because she's from Australia?) Grab a glass of juice, pull up a cushion, and enjoy Mrs Peanuckle's Bird Alphabet! Hope you enjoy!-Helen, Curator of Bird Programs
