One of the World's Largest Bird Cages....

Built in 1904 the Bird Cage was the first building of the St. Louis Zoo...built for the World's Fair in 1904.

This is one amazing place to spend time among the birds. The Thingy from yesterday was photographed here within the cage. There is an entire ecosystem within the cage and walkways to follow...some at water's edge and here among the tree tops. I suppose it is close to a football field in size.

Truly a photographer's paradise.

What a fantastic place to visit and take pictures.
Did you get a 'full' shot of the funny bird from your other post?

Sunny I am sorry to say I didn't...I was so caught up in it's quirky antics that by the time it dawned on me to get his spindly legs...he never returned!

Oh. Another kind of Thingy! Great shot. At least with this one we got the legs as well... ;)
