High-Flying Fun in Brazil and Beyond


Flower Show visitors simply swooned over having birds from The Philadelphia Zoo join us for Passport to the World.

The parrots, macaws, and sun conures were meant to add authenticity to Burke Brothers‘ depiction of the Amazon rainforest, but these characters were eager to explore the Show floor!

At different times last week I saw the colorful creatures fly over Holland, Japan, and several other represented nations. The birds swoop and soar with great speed, but Flower Show volunteer Laura Blanchard was able to snap a quick pic of a mid-air mission. Thanks, Laura!
