Louis Calvo had the best birds. He walked away with Best of everything. Well deserved. The birds were of outstanding quality and sound. Thanks for all of your hard work, Louis. It shows!
All it takes is one good bird to wind up being the Best of the show. So never think you don't have enough birds, you've never shown before. I can't tell you how many times we have had a novice walk in and win the show. We all enjoy seeing new exhibitors.
with the Southern California Spanish Timbrado Association!
