See the birds of Roundwood Park Aviary

Apparently constructed in 1956 following pressure from the Willesden & District Caged Birds Society, Roundwood Park aviary, in North West London, is home to a number of species of birds, including Cockateils, Canaries and Budgerigars.

Though the Brent Heritage website reports the aviary was once the victim of bird-theft, with budgerigars worth £50 stolen in the summer of 1963, it seems that things have calmed down somewhat since then, and when your author popped by, a small child and his mother were enjoying the simple pleasures of smiling at zebra finches.
