Birds in Bush Gardens, Tampa. Why do they come back?

Bush Gardens in Tampa, Florida, is a zoo and amusement park. It is just fantastic. We were wondering how it is possible that most of the birds live free in the park. You see them flying away to another area in the park and later come back. How is this possible? Sometimes they risk their lives landing in areas where predators live. Most tropical birds live encaged but in large surfaces. It seems that they have a good live here and we could take good pictures. The cages are so large that visitors can go for a walk inside them.

Bush Gardens in Tampa, Florida, is een zoo maar ook pretpark. Het is gewoon fantastisch. We vroegen ons wel af hoe het mogelijk is dat de meeste vogels vrij rondvliegen in het park. Je ziet ze wegvliegen naar een ander gebied en later terugkomen. Hoe kan dit? Soms riskeren ze hun leven door te landen in een gebied waar roofdieren leven. De meeste tropische vogels verblijven echter in kooien maar hebben heel veel ruimte. Het lijkt een goed leven en gaf ons de mogelijkheid mooie foto’s te nemen. De kooien zijn zo groot dat de mensen er in kunnen gaan wandelen..

  1. What stunning photos! yes, I do believe that birds are very smart most often and can see upcoming danger and take off to safer ground! They are so good at knowing where to be and then flying off before it's too late...it's like eating an ice cream cone at one of my favorite neighborhood shops- we sit outside and they appear, hoping for just a bit of our cone, they delight in that- and then once the cone is gone- off they go again!

  4. Het is een fantastische reis die jullie maken, zoveel verschillende mooi dingen. De Universal Studios hebben wij ooit in Los Angelas bezocht, vond het geweldig, al die gekke dingen die ze bedenken om mee te maken.

  21. What great shots you have gotten of all of these colorful birds. The third bird with that yellow beak is interesting. You have to look for a bit to actually see what is beak, and what is surrounding yellow. Lovely shots
