    >> i think it is an excellent idea to educate the students
    around you about birds only IF you take the proper precautions,
    like wing clipping which can be done by an avian veterinarian,
    breeder, or pet shop. i dont know how many birds you plan to
    bring, but keep it to a minimum, like one or two. take only
    ones that trust you. dont leave the birds there overnight, or
    alone in a room. its up to you whether or not you want to take
    them out, but i think its nice of you to take them in and show
    everyone what personailites birds have, because most people
    dont realize what fun they are. if you are uncomfortable with
    taking them in, then i suggest bringing in pictures or a video
    of the birds. good luck! -jt
