Pictures, the sequel!

From the National Aviary last summer:








I love how the Aviary is expanding. The year before last an African penguin exhibit was added in, and now they've added a Grasslands exhibit as well, and made it a free-flight habitat like the others. Which in hindight might've been a poor choice- tons of very tiny, very fast birds are zipping around your head! xD

This is the only clear photo I could get in the Grasslands, but its a neat little spot. I hope they keep adding to it.




They also added a rooftop flight-deck for a raptor show. :D from the show-

Lanners Falcon



Black Vulture

*nomnomnom*


Biiig vulture



Minnie the crow, who will take bills out of your hand and put them in the donation box. I guess that day Minnie decided she wanted a vacation, because after a certain point, she took the money someone gave her and flew into a nearby tree xD



From the Wetlands exhibit-

Inca Terns



Flamingos



Conures :D




Rainforest exhibit-

Victoria Crowned Pigeon






Birds of Paradise



And this, which looks like a Tim Burton drawing come to life




HI!

In the Lorikeets exhibit


The African penguins




Stellars Sea Eagles







Bald Eagles

I feel bad for these guys, they're both pretty beat-up. One is missing a wing, the other has a disfigured wing and is blind in one eye. :( The Aviary took them on after they were found and rescued by a wildlife group a long time ago.






Now I'm just waiting til spring so the flight decks will be open again. Excited to see what else they do for this year :)

It was hilarious. And judging by the handlers' reactions, this was apparently not her first heist. xD
