The National Aviary in Pittsburgh, PA


Two Mondays ago our nice little family went to the National Aviary in Pittsburgh, PA. It was Memorial Day, so it was a perfect time to go. It wasn't crowded at all!


Above is a picture of the Little Olive and her mother outside of the Aviary. 

Below is a picture of a feeding room. There were bleachers set up so the visitors can sit down. The lady in charge hands the people meal worms to hold in the air and the birds swoop down and take it from them. We didn't do it, but the birds came quite close to us. 

 


Below is a bird friend we made

 


This is a parrot. There was also a red one that looked very similar. He didn't seem to want his picture taken, though. 


Here's a cute little owl. He was just a baby. 


     I think he was giving me the stink eye. 

     Speaking of stink eye...

 


Here's my wife looking at the penguins through the observation tubes set up in the middle of the penguin display. It seems this one didn't want to look her in the eye. He was embarrassed. 


These guys knew it was time to eat. We got to watch this lady feed them sardines. 



It was really cool to see them eat.

 Toucan Sam????


Below is a Sea Eagle. He was HUGE. The picture does him no justice.
