For the beautiful afternoon we were blessed with yesterday, we took a trip to the Tracy Aviary. Jack mostly enjoyed being able to lead the way and walk around by
himself, but the birds were pretty cool too.
I think our favorite of all was the owl. He was so dang cool, and somewhat resembled Dominic. He hooted many times for us, and Jack, who already spoke owl- has a striking ability to impersonate the owl. (Hoo Hoooooo!)
These guys were deathly afraid of the geese:
The Tracy Aviary also has many beauties other than the fowl:
I pledge allegiance to the Eagle..
These guys were all over the place showing off:
This one had a body guard that was chasing everything that came near her:
Ah, the birds of Miami:
Walking the jack-walk:
More purdy fleurs:
I didn't drink the water:
This is another fave, called the "Ruddy Duck":
I got a little fed up taking pictures of birds through cages..
These flowers grew on trees:
And like I said, showing off:
So anyone who is looking for a leisurely activity, I highly recommend the Aviary. Sure sometimes it smells bad, and you are often stepping on things you shouldn't, but it was quite pleasant. I would do it again.
Ans seriously- if Dominic were a bird....am I right? (a bird with a dislocated toe..)
