Sunday's Zoo Visit.

Last but least the girls posing on a lion... I have to admit these photo's are backwards. This should have been at the bottom but didnt feel like copying and pasting today. But enjoy anyway. N..




Not sure what this one is either and I am hoping you can see it. There are two blue birds in this cage. Beautiful animals..




Not sure if you will be able to see this one clearly or not but there are two parrots in this cage. A red one and a green one. Beautiful animals.




Bear. He seemed to have sat up right as I was taking this photo. So I was lucky to get this one where he wasnt laying down. Sweet HUH????




Finally the moose I was telling you all about.. The baby moose. I saw him standing for just a split second and couldnt get a photo of him standing. But he is so adorable. His mommy was near him at all times except for this one second I got the photo of him alone.


These are not ducks. They will turn white as they grow bigger. I cant think of the name right now. they arent swans but something else that is white like a swan.


Not sure what the bird is but I would love to enlarge this one for Jeff and I. I think sometimes we get the best photo's when out on hikes or the Zoo.

I think this is called an Alpaca. I was actually feeding this animal with my hands.


Some very beautiful fish. I love the colors of them. People were taking food from the feeders and feeding them. It was funny to see them go after the food when it was thrown in the water.


Big assed Turtle. He seemed to be posting for everyone taking photo's of him.

The two blue parrots are Hyacinth Macaws. In the next picture the red one is a Scarlet Macaw, but I can't see the green one. I don't know what the swan types are, I thought they looked like Geese. And the other bird is, I THINK, a blue Heron, but someone may have to correct me there. It looks like the blue heron in my bird guide, though.

Those are awesome photos and I'm glad you guys had a great time!

Courtney said...

Oh, duh, the green one is right next to the red one. I think it's a Great Green Macaw, but I can't see his face. If there were red feathers around the upper beak, it is.

Thanks Courtney. We had a wonderful time and it was just cool enough to walk around and enjoy the animals.

Hammer said...

Great pics. I've noticed that bears love the camera and will ham it up.

tweetey30 said...

Thanks Hammer. He was so cute because with everyone else he was just laying there but when I took my camera out he sat up like he was in the photo. Funny.

Bears are great, aren't they? But I am partial...

I KNEW that Courtney would have the answer! ;)

It sounds like the job is going great. Good for you!

Courtney said...

I did used to work with those birds afterall. Well, the macaws, anyway.

The lion reminds me of the two lions that were at each end of the 7th Street Bridge in Modesto. We lived in a tent under the bridge for a while in 1941. When I was a kid, I rode those Lions all over the place; at least pretended to. I Posted a picture of one of them for you to look at. Nice post and some great pictures!

WC bears are great. I have a post for tomorrow but no photo's of this post. Wish I did.

Jeannie the girls love it and it wears them down from all the walking.

MOM it is. I did fries tonight and did rather well. I have stated I really dont want to do the headset but if I have to I will.


Courtney they are beautiful animals. I love looking at them. There is this bird shop up the street from us that sells them and they run for about 1,000 dollars a piece and that isnt including the cage.

CA I went and visited your blog. Thanks for sharing and again glad I could help bring back some good memories of that bridge.

That's lovely, the girls must have loved it. Now we're in our summer home with Kitem and we saw a wild boar and a foan live in their natural habitat just waking about. Alex was very excited.

tweetey30 said...

Helene that must have been awsome to see. I have never seen a real boar before. I have seen them on TV but never in real life. I dont blame Alex for being excited.

I love the picture of the girls on the lion statue best, and the tortoise second. :)
