Free Flight

Last night Harry and I attended the Free Flight Tropical Sunset Fundraiser. Free Flight is an exotic bird sanctuary in Del Mar. You can read more about them on the Free Flight website. We had a lot fun Рthey had a bar, delicious  food, a silent auction and a great band.

Here’s a little video of some of the birds: a Moluccan Cockatoo, a pair of Mexican Red- headed Amazons and a Gold and Yellow Macaw.

    • The aviary is mostly enclosed, but it has a good canopy of trees so I can’t really tell. I think all the free birds have clipped wings so they don’t go very far.

    • It’s not completely enclosed. Which explains the clipped wings. Maybe Free Flight isn’t really the best name… : P. But it’s a really nice environment. Lots of trees and even a koi pond. The birds get to be out in the sun while they socialize with the other birds.
