At our April meeting of 2019 we enjoyed the company of special visitors from Brazil. César Wenceslau is a bird breeder as well as a veterinarian and a judge of Posture Canaries with the Brazilian Ornithology Federation.

César and his wife Amanda were both very delightful and took questions from us regarding breeding birds in Brazil.

We certainly had very interesting discussions and it was surprising to see how big canary breeding and showing is in Brazil.

He also answered several veterinary questions for us.

These are Posture Canaries. This is the breed of canaries that César judges. They are definitely something few of us were familiar with.

César brought Brazilian show magazines for our library that had many examples of these very strange looking birds. They are very popular in Brazil.

Thanks so much to César and his wife Amanda. We all enjoyed your visit!
