Free Flight Aviary

10 September 2007

Folks, I have to show you how much fun I had at the free flight aviary here in San Diego, Ca where I am visiting for a month while I'm at a Navy school.

I highly suggest if you're in the area to google the place and get directions to visit, it's a fun time for only 5$ per adult! =D  Enjoy the pictures!  I had a great time taking them!

There are birds all over the place, some you can even have hop up on your finger!  No cages to have to shoot through for most of the birds! =D Which always makes me happy!

Wow those are great pictures! I love the bird sticking his tongue out - That's really a strange thing to see... :) Are both of you in CA yet?

oops!!

Third: hycacinth Macaw
Fourth: sun conures
Fifth: lesser crested cockatoo

Then somewhere in there you have possibly a mini macaw or a mexican macaw.

Having birds even small ones like the ones i have (Budgies) is a fantastic experience. If you get just one it will bond with you a ton and preen your eyebrows and eyelashes. You might look into getting one, they should be all over Japan.
