The last remaining blue heron babies at the zoo in Tampa. Across the alligator exhibit I spotted a young tricolored heron looking grumpy. He still had that fuzz on the top of his head.
Some of the resident critters at the zoo.
One of my favorite birds in the aviary had babies this spring. The bottom 2 are offspring of the top one.

A few fun things from Zoo Tamp in June.
Baby little blue herons at various ages.
Above are almost grown tricolored herons.
A snowy egret was watching her eggs. They had not hatched yet.
Baby house sparrows were being fed. The nest was high up in the roof of the ticket booth. I heard the babies chirping as I walked in and stopped to snap the above.
Besides the usual animals you see at the zoo, you can usually find wild baby birds growing up in the spring at Lowry Park Zoo. I found all of these in late May.
