Flights of Wonder

Flights of Wonder is a type of show you'll find at many zoos around the country, although you won't find any parrots riding bicycles.The show starts with several species of birds flying down to the stage, frequently over the heads of the audience. After this, your "tour guide" Guano Joe comes out and demonstrates the natural behaviors and abilities of various birds, while playing out a message of conservation. Among the 30 species of birds in the show are various hawks and macaws, a crowned crane, and an ibis.
