When making the appointment, you will be asked to supply an event starting time and a release time. We understand that times may slip a little, and therefore will be prepared to release up to 30 minutes after the scheduled time. Depending upon the time of day, and our prior commitments, additional waiting time MAY be available at a cost of $25.00 for every additional half-hour or portion thereof. We often schedule more than one event per day in the busy season: we will not miss our scheduled appearance at another person’s event due to a delay in the current event. In addition, long delays may not be advisable from the bird’s standpoint – they are currently confined to small cages, and are quite hungry and thirsty.
