Slideshow of the 10 Mile Parrot Walk on Memorial Day

These are a series of slides taken before, during and after the Parrot Walk on May 28th, 2012. The walk was to raise funds for the birds at "A Refuge for Saving the Wildlife" and there was quite a corps of enthusiastic humans and birds who braved the 90 degree heat to make the event a great success. (Our staff was taking bets that I would not make the full ten miles...but I did, as well as the other walkers).

Thanks to the donors, walkers and volunteers who helped to make a difference for the birds at the shelter, as this is what it is all about.

The song selected for the slideshow soundtrack is "You Raise Me Up" by Josh Groban and is very fitting, especially so as he grew up in the northern suburbs of Chicago, not far from the Refuge.
