Bird Enclosure

Bird Enclosure ( # 16 on Map)

Once know as the swan enclosure, this site has been the home of swans and geese since King George donated a pair of swans to the Public Gardens in 1926. After the death of Horatio, the last surviving swan, Flora and Finegan, a pair of Toulouse Geese, became the new residents of the bird enclosure. Flora has become a widow after the sudden death of Finegan. She resides here for most of the year with her new best friend Diana, delighting visitors with their supple, gyrating necks. During the winter months they take a short vacation at a wildlife sanctuary.
