This is Mali.
Last Saturday morning I had a chance to visit the Bloedel Conservatory before they opened to the public.
I'm now on a first name basis with many of the birds.
They impressed me but I doubt the feeling was mutual, they've met lots of people more clever than me.
The Conservatory is worth a visit, the renovations are complete, the new roof looks great.
And there are lots and lots more birds than there were a year ago.
