Scripps Aviary is a lush African rain forest, complete with rushing waterfalls and exotic plants. Look up and you might spot some of the more than 130 colorful African native birds representing about 35 different species. These include bearded barbets, openbill storks, and gold-breasted starlings. A local philanthropist named Ellen Browning Scripps provided the funds to build the “world’s greatest flying cage,” the Scripps Aviary, in 1923. It was remodeled in 1958 and again in 1991.Translate Show original #Aviary #San_Diego #Zoo
