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.

The San Diego Zoo houses the largest collection of bird species in the United States.

      • I never can walk in a zoo these days and I have some nice ones if there are any good zoos 🙂 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 😦

      • 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. 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????? 🙂

    • 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~

  2. 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!

    • 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~

      • 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. 😦 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 🙂 Thanks Cindy and cheers for all the cheers you spread.
