A Eurasian eagle owl, the largest owl in the world, glided through the audience yesterday at the San Diego Wild Animal Park during a preview of Frequent Flyers. The new bird show officially opens today
Mlonjo, an East African crowned crane with a golden crest that resembles a pincushion, put his six-foot wingspan on display and swooped over the excited crowd.
He highlighted the most exciting feature of the San Diego Wild Animal Park's new bird show, Frequent Flyers – the birds will be frequently flying over your head.
