Our theory is they put the ducks up front because you are excited to see them when you first enter, but after you see the more exotic birds you'd be like, "Great. A duck." Unless it was a blue duck, because I've never seen one of those.
The coolest national mascot ever. Beauty, grace, strength and smarts all wrapped up in one animal.
I loved this Golden Eagle that kept trying to fly despite only having one wing. He was very tenacious.
I'm probably putting in a few too many pics, but it's always hard to decide. This crane was beautiful and by far the most active bird in the park.
I think owls are some of the coolest birds. They didn't have many owls here, but I was happy to find this Snow Owl.
Why is it that all the other birds and animals in zoos are caged and peacocks get to roam free? What did they ever do that was so special? It's bad enough to flaunt their beautiful feathers to the other birds, but then they get to be free too?
