Previously on Midlife Crisis Crossover:
In June my wife and I took my mom for a walk around the premises of our own Indianapolis Zoo to check out the current residents and the architectural upgrades on a sunny but not-so-sweltering Saturday. In this very special miniseries, we’ll take a look at the beasts and critters who welcomed us and hundreds of other families along the way.
In today’s chapter: another batch of birds, this time focused in two interactive enclosures where visitors could get up close to the wildlife, feed them on a limited basis, and pray they don’t choose that day to rebel.
The first area was all about lories and lorikeets, though don’t ask me which was which. They preferred to pose for solo and duo photo ops rather than conforming to herd mentality.i
In the other matching enclosure, the budgerigar, a.k.a. “budgies”, flock together by the zillions.
