BIRD WATCHING AT THE ANIMAL KINGDOM

Traci C. (NDM#118) (37 Posts)

Traci was born and raised in Ohio, but has been visiting Walt Disney World since she was 18 months old (in 1974)!! She has always had a special place in her heart for all things Disney, but especially loves Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and her favorite princess - Cinderella. Traci spent her childhood visiting the Magic Kingdom for just one day every summer (her grandparents lived in Tampa, Fla.). It wasn't until 2003 that she finally was able to stay "on property" .. and now visits at least once a year (more if she's lucky). The family's favorite resort - Beach Club. The love of Disney runs deep in Traci's house - her daughters love all things Disney and are always looking for "hidden Mickeys" (and both been counted as NDKs). And her husband? Well, he's almost as Disney-obsessed as the girls. One of these days the family hopes to make the move south to be closer to The Mouse (and away from the cold, snowy Ohio winters).


At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, both the Pangani Forest Trail and the Maharajah Jungle Trek offer the opportunity to observe a variety of colorful birds at fairly close range.  Disney even provides identification cards with pictures of the birds and the name of the species.

The biggest challenge I’ve ever had with regard to these birds was trying to find the golden pheasant in the Maharajah Jungle Trek aviary.  But the most fun I ever had was watching this little birdie bathing in a bucket.  He made quite a lot of noise for such a little guy, and startled me as I walked the paths in Pangani.  I was grateful he stuck around for a photo.
