[FUN+LOOKBOOK] Bird Feeding and Playground at Venice Piazza Mckinley Hill

Last week, Mr. John Castle from uncrackedballs.com invited me to go to Venice Piazza at Mckinley Hill for an early morning bird feeding and fun at their kid’s playground. He knew I had a fondness for animals and since we couldn’t do our zoo trip, we went to this place instead.

There’s also a playground for children nearby where you can take your kids to play and have fun. You may also enjoy yourself there. Who says you have to be a child to play? My favorite was the swing! A warning though, it can only take some weight. Mr John Castle attempted to swing and the whole playground shook I got nervous it might collapse. 

Bird Feeding Schedule: 7:00am-9:00am or 4:00pm-5:00pm

We arrived at around 7:30am and there are a lot of pigeons roaming around waiting for people to feed them bread crumbs or feeds. Ugh! So careless of us that we forgot to bring feeds! We had to rely on asking other people if they can spare some crumbs to we can have the experience.

Some kids were attempting to catch a bird but they were very quick to get away from their grasps! Poor pigeons, they seemed so scared making them fly away. I wonder if you can catch a pigeon? I know myself I could only catch rabbits!

A low coo sound would make them come nearer

The last time I had a close encounter with a HUGE animal was when I went on a trip to Indonesia and rode an Elephant. My next to-do thing is to ride a Camel in the deserts.
