How many of you remember seeing exotic birds sitting on your arms and staring right into your eyes while making some weird noises? Well, it’s definitely not an everyday scene for us. However, it will be — starting today.
As a nonprofit zoo dedicated only for birds, The National Aviary aims to bring something new to its visitors. They are hosting a show that runs twice daily called Taking Flight: An Aerial Adventure. In this show we have the liberty to watch birds fly freely as we can capture those interesting moments through our eyes.
That’s just a start though.
When you donate any amount towards this nonprofit organisation, a parrot will fly and sit right on your arm. Then it will give you a packet of flower seeds.
But the story is not always so sweet.
As pointed out at Ellwood City Ledger:
During a test, which was crucial for the success of this show, a large owl flew outside of the property and to the neighbouring park. All the workers were after it, but they couldn’t really reach that fast bird until a mobile tracking device was used.
Using a mobile tracking device helped them find the exact location of the missing bird, after which they were able to end this bird case in about 20 minutes. The owl was then returned safely to the aviary.
There was no mention on what kind or how this tracking tool was used. Our guess is that it is definitely a GPS tracking tool.
