The color on these birds!


I took the kids to a zoo not far from our house a couple weeks ago. We met my family for sort of an end-of-the-summer day together. It was a great time and the kids loved seeing their cousins. They loved the Lorikeets too. (There’s an enclosed area you can go in and feed the birds. They land on you and eat right out of your hands.)

At one point, my son had five birds perched on him at the same time!

And you can’t really tell from the photo above, but the color of these birds is unbelievable! (Perfect for sharing as a Wordless/Wordful Wednesday photo.)

    Sounds like a fun day with cousins. We recently went to a zoo in SC with a similar enclosure and my daughter about freaked when the bird started peeing on her. lol.

    Thanks, Jeanette! This one's in California in a town called Lodi (or at least near there). It was so fun!

    What pretty pictures! The children's area of the zoo in St. Louis does something similar. It's SO much fun. I think I enjoy it almost as much as the kiddos! :)(Oh, and thank you for visiting and leaving such a sweet comment the other day!)

    Me too, Stephanie. It was fun, especially seeing how fascinated the kids were and how much they loved it!

    I love it when they have a place to feed the birds. And when the birds are so friendly like that. Such pretty colored ones too! :)

    I'd say they were more than friendly, Elaine. lol I had one land on my hat and swing down on the brim, right in my face. It was too funny.

    They are beautiful! The Pittsburgh Aviary has something similar to that. It's so much fun!

    Oh wow, those birds are so beautiful. Their colors are so vivid! How fun to have them perch right on you and eat from your hand.
