This past Friday evening I headed to Phoenix with a friend I’ve known since I was 10 for the First Friday Art Detour as well as a party he knew of nearby. After crashing at a friend of his house we headed back to Tucson for the Saturday afternoon baseball game. On the drive back we had some time, so Mark suggested stopping at the ostrich farm in the shadows of Picacho Peak. I recall when at the University of Arizona this being added, but I had never stopped.
For a $5 fee you can feed the ostriches, emus, lorikeets and a few other animals. Once we feed the ostriches and lorikeets we headed south towards Tucson and the baseball game. It was an interesting experience, and here are some fun facts about the ostrich.
