2012 Forbes Sale

Aviculture Productions (Tony and Ray) headed off to the 2012 Forbes bird sale yesterday.

The 2012 sale returned to the showground - but in a new pavillion.  Construction wasn't quite finished - but the location was still adequate - it should be much better next year though.

Bird numbers were down slightly on previous years but there was still a good selection of parrots and finches which included a B&G Macaw, lots of Amazons and then some more common ringnecks, lorikeets, neophemas and finches etc.

The chilly morning eventually turned into a nice day in Forbes.

There was a good hour of buyers through the shed but quickly dropped back to the sellers - a good chance to catchup with people you only see a couple of times a year. 

It appeared a good percentage of birds were sold which should bring the sellers back next year.

Once again the nice people of the Central West Bird Club put on a good sale.

Hope to see you there next year.
