Blackburn Pavillion - Section 1 - Enclosed aviaries

Three large indoor flights face visitors as they enter. Nearest holding keel-billed toucans, middle flight a grey-winged trumpeter, furthest flight a pair of toco toucans. The toucans were new pairs. Smaller corner flights held mount apo lorikeets (straight ahead), bali starlings/congo peafowl (corner flight), pekin robin, madagascar partridge and blue-winged lory (nearest left-hand flights). Doorway to main flight after the 3rd large aviary, can be seen through the back wire of these aviaries.

      My mistake, it is a Common trumpeter, the grey-winged are at Paignton

      It is extremely light in the Blackburn Pavilion, but in all of the photos those garish, bright red bars aren't actually allowing zoo patrons to become immersed in the landscape. I'm simply not a fan of the red, metal bars...

      In all fairness, it is meant to represent a modernised Victorian building and is not intended to be immersive at all. This area is full of dedications to Victorian naturalists and lots of little bits and bobs of the old house have been preserved. Red's a little bright, but it is apparently historically appropriate.
    There are no comments to display.
