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 wild mockingbird eating the berries.
A few fun things from Zoo Tamp in June.
The orangutan babies are very popular with the kids at Zoo Tampa.
It’s rare to see the babies near Dad but this one was hanging out with him.
More shots of the baby Colobus monkey. He was all white fuzz a few weeks earlier.
The gibbon baby was also a hit. It was tough getting shots of the baby against the parent and into the sun so these are a little blown out.
Wednesday Around the World.
Residents at the zoo, these macaws get to fly around from the entrance to the stage area for the bird show. I caught them flying around one morning and they stopped for a break.
Residents of the zoo. The stork (middle picture) was born this spring at the zoo.
A few wild things visiting the zoo. A northern parula and mallard.

Another fun morning watching the orangutans playing at Lowry Park zoo.
It’s rare to see the mom and baby orangutan this close to the glass. The baby was very entertained by pressing her face up to the glass.
Everyday activities for the orangutans.
The baby chimp was out playing by herself.
The two baby elephants are finally growing up.
I went back to Lowry Park zoo early on a Sunday morning to see the baby tiger cub. The baby was not out that morning so the dad was out alone having a snack. He seemed to be enjoying it. He kept showing it off.
It’s always fun to watch the baby chimp being a baby and playing. Keeva is around 2 years old. She must be going through the terrible two’s.
The adults were snacking.
The orangutan baby was born in late December last year. We caught her and Mom having a bonding moment.
It’s always fun when there are babies at the Lowry Park Zoo.
