I have been dying to head out to west auckland for ages to check out the bird barn but have always been afraid of not finding my way on my own.

well today the kids and I threw caution to the wind and omg I am so pleased we did. The money I could spend out there if i had it..... :gotta_think_about_i

The shop is made up of two stand alone buildings. One dedicated to birds with gorgeous gardens, outdoor aviaries, indoor cages, bird sitting as well as sale etc. The other dedicated to other pets, dogs, reptiles and fish.

anyway here are HEAPS of pics from our morning..

the outdoor aviaries and gardens


with dovecotes everywhere



the boy found a crocodile :D


now onto the birds!

we watched these gorgeous pair kissing for ages


this was one of the guys being bird sat, he was quite the ham


and this guy too



this McCaw was in for the day, his owner works on weekends only and so her guy goes in for birdy daycare. He was hatched with a terrible twisted beak and so she doesnt like to leave him alone.


in the aviaries we found..



can you see the rosella up the back of this one?






I fell in love with this guy and his cage mate ( vids to come of them both soon)




the princess was amazed by the colours of the sun conures.


and the boy quiet shocked me when he got home and said he loved the loggerkeys.. took for ever for me to figure out he meant lorikeets LOL

as promised the vid of the two I fell in love with.
the little corella spoke so clearly. as we walked up to his aviary he said " Hi, Hello, How are you?" all while waving to us with one of his feet the way a baby would, open and close palm. As soon as the camera went on though the beak clamped shut so this is all I could get LOL
