Birdland a.k.a. DO NOT SCROLL DOWN IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF BIRDS. I MEAN YOU ERIN.
My BFF Erin is terrified of birds. She hates pretty much everything about them, from their flappy wings to their little bird feet to their pointy beaks. When we lived in Charleston (a city thoroughly infested with both pigeons and sea gulls) I used to have to walk ahead of her and scare the birds off the sidewalks. Once a bird almost touched her and I think she actually passed out for a second. So the super-special free members weekend in the bird exhibit at our aquarium is pretty much her idea of the ninth circle of hell. But for E and Baby Evan and me it was super duper cool.
There were a LOT of birds
Admission included a seed stick to get the birds to come down and sit on you
Every time they landed on my hand I squealed a little bit. EEEEE!
Double-fisting the bird seed.
This bird was not friendly, although he did steal all the seed off my stick when I tried to share. Pushy twit.
Baby Evan liked the birds too.
Although he MAY have yanked a tail feather or two off of this one.
No tail yanking! Birds don't tolerate that kind of behavior the way your cat does.
And surprisingly, none of us got crapped on.
Sorry Erin, the pictures were too good not to post. Forgive me?
