Animals in Captivity Part 5

Toronto Zoo Bird 002

One of my favorite subjects to photograph are birds. I definitely enjoy seeing them out in the wild better than in cages, but I do understand that many birds that end up in zoos are rescued and cannot be released into the wild. I have photographed many birds in captivity and it makes me sad knowing that many people dream of flying free like the birds while there are birds that cannot do so themselves. I understand that there are reasons that birds are kept, even as pets, but I still want to see them fly.
