Weekly Photo Challenge : Saturated – National Aviary Pittsburgh

Talk about being saturated!

Rob Paine Bird National Aviary

I shot this photo of a Gouldian Finch in the Grasslands exhibit at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh last week.  (Please see more text and another bird photo below)

The National Aviary is one of the neatest places to watch birds. In many of the exhibits, including the Grasslands room, the birds are flying in the same space you are, not in cages or behind glass walls.

Another bird in the same room that really caught my eye was a Long-tailed Finch shown in the photo I shot below.

    1. Thank you! The National Aviary is just a fantastic place to take photos. And unlike some tourist places, they encourage visitors to take photos. The staff is fantastic and friendly.
