RiverWalk In the pavilion of birds, a friendly employee of the company offered us honest advice: do not spend your money on the nectar to feed the birds; it's so hot out that they aren't very interested in eating right now, but come back in a little while once they're cooled down from their baths. We walked into the pavilion, interested in seeing the birds while opting not to try and feed them, and found the birds flying around like wild, bathing in the pools of water gathering from the sprinklers, and drying themselves on bushes. This little guy decided to show off to me, just before he decided to fly up and sit on my boyfriend's head.
