Ryan is a junior pre-veterinary student at UMO. His special interest is AVIAN MEDICINE and he would like to practice in MAINE!!!!!! (no pressure from here!) Ryan is a bird person. He is very calm and self- assured around the birds and they just love him – even the cranky ones. He approached us about volunteering because he needed some experience with exotics. All summer he came on Saturdays plus some other days and helped in many ways. At the August Open House, he took over the visiting in the sunroom with cockatoos freeing me up to circulate and talk with guests.
