Frydenlund Fuglepark - Parrot aviary #14

      The bird park's most represented order (species-wise) is the parrots, although their aviaries only take up a relatively small part of the total area. This aviary houses greater vasa parrots.

      Frydenlund Fuglepark, also known as "Danmarks Fuglezoo" ("Denmark's bird zoo"), is one of two bird parks in Denmark, the other one being Nordsjællands Fuglepark. They contrast each other somewhat in that Frydenlund focuses more on larger birds - such as waterfowl, pheasants and ratites - and has fewer rare species, mostly keeping birds that are easy to source in private aviculture. Besides birds, they also have four species of mammals.

      Frydenlund is located in the middle of the countryside on the island of Funen in very pleasant surroundings. The exhibits themselves are also generally fine, but it's one of those zoos where you see a heavy contrast between new and old - the new free-flight aviaries are huge and luxurious, but there are also rows of tiny parrot aviaries that look like they haven't changed for many decades.

      That mesh looks awfully rusty :(

      Indeed - as I mentioned in the description, this is probably one of the aviaries that was built in the 1970's and hasn't been renovated in any way ever since (except for maybe the bottom planting).
