Fun at the Lowry Park Zoo.

I was looking in the spoonbill exhibit and noticed a wild spoonbill on top of the exhibit looking in. I think he wanted to join the party inside for some treats.

Some wild birds at the zoo: a Carolina wren, 2 black vultures preening each other, a house sparrow working on a nest in the gift shop sign and a baby duck in one of the ponds.

Elephants playing in the first picture with the 3 legged impala watching.

Grumpy old bird (that was just born this spring).  Marabou stork.

I was tempted to join these ladies who looked like they were having too much fun but I didn’t have the right color shirt or hat on.

Babies at the 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.

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.

Checking on the cutest baby.

I went back to Lowry Park zoo in January to see how the baby orangutan was doing. The baby didn’t look much bigger than he (or she) did during Christmas week when she was born.  Mom was moving around a lot more with the baby though. Big sister was also hanging around close to mom.
