A hooded merganser hanging around the manatee exhibit. I’m not sure if he is part of the zoo. I didn’t see a band on him.

I was looking around up in the trees to see if any of the wild birds are nesting yet and saw this barred owl high up in the pine trees.

  1. Wow, what incredible close ups of these delightful birds. Loved all of them. I have never seen an Inca Tern before, an extraordinary bird, looks like he has a mustache and a yellow dickie bow. Great photos!

  2. I love these — really want to go to that zoo. Bill isn’t crazy about zoos (neither am I any more, the usual kind) but this one looks so different and so worth it. I’ll keep trying (don’t want to go badly enough to drive myself up there, which maybe tells me something). Anyway I love your birds and it is so interesting how the wild ones find it a safe place to be as well!
