Chapultepec Zoo Visit--Aviary Complex

The bird area was very unique, given the many differing styles of aviary's. These half dozen "igloo" looking aviaries were strange. Heavy diamond bar's with mesh behind them. Looked like they could withstand the weight of the heaviest snowfall. Not that that would ever be necessary. The architectural design was very difficult for me to understand. Inside each one, a total waste of space as there was a mesh cage along one side, and a small mesh cage on the opposite side of the pedestrian path. Just really odd designed aviaries.
