Those of you that read my blog are very aware of my love for The National Aviary in Pittsburgh. Not only does it have a sloth (my favorite animal), but the fuzzy, feathery birds make my heart melt. I had a duck as pet in college (a whole other blog post!) and I feel that birds are some of the cutest creatures on earth. My family is a member of the National Aviary which was a wise choice for us and we try to visit at least once a month. The rooms are climate-controlled (great for winter strolling!), they have fun live shows, and the ambiance is all-around fun and family-friendly.
December 15th and 18th were big days for the aviary and its fans and we were elate to hear the good news: Bette and Sydney were the proud parents of two new fuzzy gray babies! As there are less than 20,000 African Penguins in the wild, The National Aviary is doing their part to increase and maintain a healthy African Penguin population and I know I’m very grateful for their commitment.
