Field Trip: Bird Kingdom

On January 5, the lads and I took in the Bird Kingdom.   I managed to find a fantastic deal through groupon plus had an additional 10$ off coupon which.... WOOT WOOT  saved us the price of parking (which by the by.. tad expensive).

BUT the Bird Kingdom was a lovely place to visit and I am so glad we were able to go.


The Bird Kingdom is divided into different sections. Each area with it's own speciality.

The first area was devoted to the daredevils of the Niagara Falls.   We had fun posing in a barrel.


We had a chance to read various exploits, and learned about one lady who went over the falls in a barrel with her pet toy dog.   The dog survived, the lady sadly did not.

The reptile area.

My son was able to have a bird sit on his arm.  A nice big parrot.   We weren't allowed to take pictures of him with the bird.  It was a money grab, but what the lad wanted was to hold the bird and he could.  He said it was neat!





















The finch room (or at least what I call the finch room... better name probably the small bird room)....oh my... the fun we had watching the finches!   They move so fast and they made us laugh.



We moved from here past the talking bird (none of the pictures good enough to show).
Through the noctural area.
Off this took us to the main aviary... WOW... the birds we saw.  It was rather interesting to see.  The room was divided into multiple levels, starting us at the top so we could work our way down.  Feeding stations were placed throughout the room.   It was great to just take one's time and slowly walk through, checking for hidden spots where birds might be hiding.

  

I hope you enjoyed the tour through the Bird Kingdom.  It was an excellent place to see a variety of different birds and other critters too.  :)
