This past Sunday, my youngest son and I decided to go to our local zoo. We especially wanted to visit the budgie exhibit.
We got in the car and drove the 45 minutes to the zoo. Paid our entry fees and bought some budgie sticks…little sticks with bird seed on them.
We made our way around the park with our cameras taking pictures along the way. Eventually we made it to the budgie exhibit. We opened the door and went through the sheets of heavy plastic that hang at the entrance and exit to keep the budgies from escaping. Several of the birds immediately landed on us looking for food. When we brought out the budgie sticks, we were MOBBED! I couldn’t stop laughing. They are such colorful and entertaining little birds.
Here’s some pics of these little critters.
