There was a "bird man" at the park today. He breeds and tames budgies and other birds. He had 15 in total. He let the kids hold them and walk around with them...Jon and Ben were equally delighted to hold a couple of birds. We weren't sure if this man was doing this for money and when Jon went to give him a pocket full of his change I decided that perhaps it is better to err on the side of not in case he just happened to be walking through the park... although if people randomly handed me money I wouldn't have a problem whatsoever...but some may find this insulting I suppose.
