I’m embarrassed to admit it’s be years (possibly 15) since I visited the Aquarium in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. Fortunately, I was able to correct that oversight recently when I was invited to check out the new summer exhibit, Birds Up Close which runs until September 5th.
Aside from the regular attractions at the Aquarium, such as the belugas:
Birds Up Close give guests a chance to see a number of birds, um, up close like this great horned owl:
and turkey vultures:
It was pretty amazing to see so many animals and birds right in front of you (up close even)…I can’t imagine it will be years before I return to the Aquarium again. Thanks to Jonah Lewis and the Vancouver Aquarium for inviting me down to check it out.
