Flint River Birds

The Flint River Aquarium had a new addition from when we were there last: an aviary. It was a sizable net-enclosed outdoor room. Here are a few of the birds that were residing in there.

A Canada goose:


A pair of hooded merganzers:


A little blue heron:


A black-crowned night heron:


And a yellow-crowned night heron:



It is a nice exhibit. However, the blue jay that landed on B's head a couple of times was a little startling! It made me stop and put my camera strap around my neck. If it had decided to try out my head, I did not want to drop my camera.

Nice birds. I'd love to be so close to a Jay.

Mergansers were one of the first ducks I learned to identify.
