Bird Kingdom – World’s Largest Indoor Aviary – Niagara Falls, Canada.

The Weekly Travel Postcard – Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls.

We have visited this interesting place last year during the summer of 2016. I am not sure it is indeed  “the World’s Largest Indoor Aviary”, as they claim, but if you are in Niagara Falls and like tropical and other birds, it is certainly worth visiting.

I like the design of the building, which looks inside like the old temple lost in a jangle. The structure is Javanese House from the 1800s, which is one of the kind in North America. Most of the tropical birds inside are free to fly within the structure

Only some smaller birds – lorikeet parrots, are in the enclosure called Lorikeet Landing where then can also fly, but this area  is separated from the rest. For an additional fee and under the supervision of the aviary’s staff, adults and children can feed the birds, and if they are lucky, birds might land on their arms, head or shoulders. It looked like fun, especially for children.

Here is another picture from this place and below you can see the display presenting pictures of the birds in this aviary. The display was pretty long so I was not able to take the photo of the whole poster.

Beside the above mentioned areas, there are a few other displays behind glass, like in a zoo, presenting some other animals like bats, owls and turtles. From this area, particularly interesting for me was seeing small baths feeding on fruits.

So next time you are visiting Niagara and you like to almost feel like transported to the tropics, visit this interesting place and be surrounded by exotic, clourful tropical birds. It is a particularly good outing for a rainy day or if you are in Niagara Falls  in winter.

Here is Bird Kingdom website with more information to help you plan your trip.

Canada Day and Canada’s 150 Birthday Celebration – A Weekly Travel Postcard.

A Weekly Travel Postcard – Canada Day  and Canada’s 150-th Birthday.

A sand sculptures of 2 beavers commemorating Canada’s 150 Birthday, Oshawa, Durham region, Ontario, Canada, 2017.

This year we were celebrating not only Canada Day, but also Canada’s 150 Birthday. There were lots of events organized to commemorate it, some special discounts offers and no entry fees to access Canada’s National Park during the whole year.

We have celebrated it by visiting our local park, inviting guests for a party and looking at fireworks in the evening of July 1st. While walking in the Lakeview Park in Oshawa, Durham Region (GTA – Greater Toronto Area) we have discovered these two beavers’ sand sculpture to commemorate Canada’s 150 Birthday.  I think the beavers holding Canada’s flag look quite cute.

Happy Canada Day and 150 Canada’s Birthday!!!
