Meadowbrook Healthcare resident Pearl Forgette (middle) and her daughter, Nancy Ellsworth, spend some time chatting with Sydney the cockatoo. The bird made a visit from the Animal House Pet Shop in Plattsburgh during Meadowbrook's monthly Nature Club meeting, where residents get a chance to interact with a new, and oftentimes exotic, pet animal and then are able to paint a picture of it. They also create holiday- and festival-themed crafts, such as Mardi Gras masks.
