I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Birdworld


It's no surprise that of the available attractions in Kuranda -- nature walks, koala petting, shopping -- I picked Birdworld, an enclosed aviary with 40 or so species of birds flying around, and a pair of cassowaries in an enclosure.

Mary is modeling the latest fashion in Sun Conures, a small parrot native to South America. It was cute and inquisitive -- after it explored Mary's hat thoroughly we tried to get it to switch to mine and it fled, only to land on my shoulder a minute later -- so nobody cared that it was also a tourist.

I got enough pictures for an entire year of bird blogging, so I won't post more now.
