Full House for Australian Pelican Show

It was exciting to see our Theatre fill up today for the incredible Australian Pelican Show!
The Pelicans make the journey to the Australian Outback about once every 10 years. Everyone wanted to know the reason why.

Successful morning to South America

Eight of us went on a virtual trip to South America with David Attenborough as our Hummingbird tour guide. I've been planning this trip for the past 2 weeks.
The new technology in our Theatre (designed for movies) now has some sort of new app. that I don't understand and most of the staff are not familiar with it either. Recently we have one person hired in the Recreation department that know how to operate it and has the time to help me show first class bird documentaries.
