Birds of Fine Feather Flock Together!

At least at the zoo, they do!
There’s a peacock in that tree! A fellow Hollorite had one on her roof! But this one was loose at The San Diego Zoo.
The Zoo has huge walk-through, multi-level aviaries, that I have been visiting since I was a small child. It is full of exotic birds.

Check out their painted plumage!
The San Diego Zoo houses the largest collection of bird species in the United States.
It’s a picture-taking paradise!
And the birdies know it!
Look at them, they practically pose.

Cheers to you from the zoo!

      1. I never can walk in a zoo these days and I have some nice ones if there are any good zoos ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved Bush Gardens as they were huge enclosures but I know it is to allow us to fall in love with them and SAVE THEM in the end though sadly the worlds land seems to be needed for man more ๐Ÿ™

      2. Oh yes, I know what you mean. The birds in this massive aviary are pretty lucky though. They have lots of room and lots of good food and lots of safety. It kills me to know that by 2035 Polar Bears will exist only in zoos. This is just awful. They are aquatic mammals that are made to swim great distances. Seeing them in the zoo depresses me so I know what you are saying.

  1. What vibrancy of colours! It is generally said that everything that nature displays has a purpose. What could be the purpose of such beautiful colours?


    1. The males are colorful to attract mates! Females tend to be drab so they can hide better on nests. Thank you so much Shakti for your generous comments!

  2. Hi Cuz,
    For some weird reason I’m not getting all of your posts ! Would have missed this one if I hadn’t been reading through some of your older stuff. The coloration on these birds is amazing and almost unbelievable. Are you sure you didn’t touch these up with a magic pencil????? ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Yes WP is hiccuping with my posts. You are the third notifier. The photos won’t load for some people and the like function frequently doesn’t work. It didn’t work with this post for example. Thanks for telling me~

  3. A great angle on the peacock! So beautiful and majestic, and he even has a bit of a crown on his head. Really a superstar among the birds haha. I love too the pink and purple one, so radiant and jewel-tone and then the white belly – just gorgeous!

    1. So happy you enjoyed the birds! The aviaries are set on a small mountain side, and you walk up or down stairs through them. The original aviary that I visited as a child is the center, but other aviares have been added to this one. There is a stream and waterfalls and ponds. It is full of tropical plants, and the atmosphere inside the aviaries seem rarefied. It really is wonderful. Thank you or your kind comments and cheers to you~

      1. An aviary, that’s it, I have been cooped up too long! I haven’t been to one since I visited New Orleans a long time ago. ๐Ÿ™ I have visited California often, but never seem to make my way to San Diego, your pictures will have me out there soon, I hope ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks Cindy and cheers for all the cheers you spread.
