These are cute little birds - like a Sparrow that's playing dress-up as a Penguin!

Where they flying free around the Zoo grounds or in an aviary? Though they are cute, we have enough exotics flying about!

Christian, the wetlands exhibit you had to walk through double-gate to enter both ends. You were totally unaware that it was an aviary as such.
