Minnesota birds . . . Well sort of . . .

Last week I was able to make a quick run over lunch to the new exhibit at the Como Conservatory, Tropical Encounters. This exhibit includes many tropical birds, some of which I took photos of and have yet to identify. So these birds are in Minnesota, but are obviously not Minnesota birds. Here are a few of the ones that I was able to identify:

Paradise Tanager:
