For the birds

The first birds you will encounter when visiting the zoo are the flamingos, a crowd favorite.  Did you know that a well fed flamingo is more vibrantly colored and therefore more desirable as a mate.  Brings new meaning to hot pink 😉

Then it’s off to see the other denizens of the air like this Blue-Bellied Roller that breeds across Africa in a narrow belt from Senegal to the northeast Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The Black Crowned Crane that occurs in Africa south of the Sahara, although it nests in somewhat wetter habitats.

And the pelicans.  Did not see the sign designating what species of pelicans they were but they are big birds and when they “clop” close their beaks when snapping at one another you hear it!
