Aviary

Challenge #16 in the Zoo Animals series. Hosted by Grafibasilissa.
Challenge has finished
An aviary is a large enclosure for confining birds. Unlike cages, aviaries allow birds a larger living space where they can fly; hence, aviaries are also sometimes known as flight cages. Aviaries often contain plants and shrubbery to simulate a natural environment. Please make the bird in the aviary the focal point of the photo.
