    Flights of Wonder verses Great Bird Adventure

    The DW is a big bird lover and we have always gone to see Flight of Wonder-- last saw it May 2017. Our May 2019 trip the DW just had to see Great Bird Adventure; what a great disappointment most of the birds shown in FoW were gone. Granted it seems to be geared more for little kids. My...
