Birds just love to hang out when you give them a reason to be your friend. Often that reason is food. Spread a few seeds or place them in the feeder and you will have many visitors. They are comical to watch and a real challenge to photograph. So grab the camera, get some sunlight and vitamin D for your body, mind, and soul, and relax to their song and antics.

Recently I went on a trip to Aquatica in San Antonio. I had the opportunity to visit Roa’s Aviary within the park which is a tropical oasis filled with beautiful birds. It was a real challenge to get these photos especially with a Samsung phone and little zoom. I always say the equipment is not as important as the person behind it. The following birds are represented Sun Conure, White-Crested Turaco, Superb Starling, Palawan Mynah, Indian Ring Neck Parrot, Guira Cuckoo, Black Naped Fruit Dove, Lady Ross’s Turaco, Crested Coua, Red-Crested Turaco, Guinea Turaco, Laughing Kookabura, Kenyan Crested Guinea Fowl, Greater Blue-eared Starling, Hawaiian Goose, Inca Tern, Roseatte Spoonbill, Northern Red-Billed Hornbill, Plush Crested Jay, Bantam Chicken, Blue-Crowned Pigeon, and one unknown brown bird in trees.
