The summer display debuted at the Bellagio’s Conservatory and Botanical Gardens this month. This season’s theme is full of birds and summery flowers, including giant sunflowers, hydrangeas and chrysanthemums.
Fifty finch birds and 12 rosey bourkes will make their homes in the conservatory’s greenhouse through Sept. 8, when summer makes way for the fall display.
The conservatory is free and open to the public 24 hours daily.
