A troupe of trickster parrots, with television appearances on their resumes, are performing in two free shows Wednesday at the Dublin Library.
Performances are 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. with seating capped at 120 people per show.
While the shows are free, tickets are required and will be handed out in front of the library Wednesday beginning at 12:30 pm.
The shows are aimed at school-aged children from five years old and up.
The seven birds appearing in Dublin are domestically raised and belong to Ed and Julie Cardoza, owners and operators of San Jose-based Happy Birds, a 23-year-old traveling parrot show.
"They are amazing," Julie Cardoza said of her flock.
In addition to their parrot passion, the Cardozas operate a not-for-profit animal rescue group, Friends4Pets, that has placed more than 250 animals in new homes in the past two years.
