Nonprofit Notebook

A RARE SIGHT ... Pandemonium Aviaries, a Palo Alto-area nonprofit that provides care and conservation breeding of more than 40 non-native bird species in 54 aviaries, will open its doors to the public for the first time in its 16-year history on Saturday, May 5. Pandemonium Aviaries, featured in an April 13 cover story in the Palo Alto Weekly, will offer guided tours for a suggested, tax-deductible donation of $50 per child, $75 per adult or $200 per family. The nonprofit aviary began with the 1996 rescue of a wounded dove at the side of a road. Now it shelters rare birds such as the Victoria-crowned pigeon, blue-crowned pigeon, Bartlett's bleeding heart, Luzon bleeding heart and the Nicobar pigeon. Reservations: Location information will be provided upon receipt of a donation.
