Birds of a Feather


In Danny's parent's backyard they have a sixty foot long bird aviary. Its full of hundreds of different birds such as parakeets, cockatoos, pheasants, parrots, doves, quail, finches, love birds, ect...oh, and one giant pigeon. In the four years I have know the Elders I have never been inside with the birds. Danny was helping his dad put another waterfall inside the aviary and Danny asked if I wanted to feed them some chips. I was so excited!

Please excuse my stupid face.
In my defense, I am not used to having several flapping squawking birds within a three ft. radius of my head.
It was exciting and overwhelming.

These two birds loved Danny. They were on his shoulder the whole time!
s
I was surprised how friendly all of the birds were. They really love people! This one even gives kisses:)

And this guthrie here would be the previously mentioned giant pigeon, PigeonZilla. The average person would naturally think dont leave a cat alone with a bird? Bad news for the bird right?
This thing could eat a cat alive. Dont mess with this grey boy.



About to dig into some din-din
If you had to say these three birds looked like three best friends, who would you guess is who? I'll give you a hint who the three friends are, Lily, Roxanne and I.

I dont know why my twisted brain looked at this and automatically thought it was a picture of us three. To answer, The one on the left is Lily because it has black feathers, the one in the middle is Roxanne because of it's abnormally small forehead, and the big fat albino one is me.
Isn't is obvious to you now?
I think that might be Lily on Danny's shoulder...

How can ya say no to that face?

I fed the birds once at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. I nearly wet myself. This post just might give me nightmares tonight. You are a brave girl, Rachel Smart. Brave girl.
