Ruby, an eclectus parrot at the conservatory

It has been pretty dreary and wet the last couple of weeks, but Deborah found us a great place to visit on a rainy day, the Bloedel Conservatory. The Conservatory is in Queen Elizabeth park, which we've actually driven by many times but never gone into. The Conservatory is an indoor, tropical garden with more than 100 birds, including parrots, macaws, finches and - of course - budgies.

Unfortunately the park itself is quite hilly, and even though there are paved paths I think it would be pretty difficult for me to get around. The Conservatory itself was okay though, with a nice paved walkway inside. It was a nice way to spend a rainy afternoon and we will certainly go back on a sunny day to see more of the park.

I put more pictures of the various birds (in colour) here.
