Zoo Visit

Not your everyday backyard bird, but isn’t this bird beautiful?  My husband and I went to our local zoo on Sunday and we found this beauty in the aviary. I’m afraid I didn’t find out what kind of bird this was or where it was from, but regardless I’m glad he sat still long enough so I could take a few photos of him.

    (I attempted to leave this comment on your about page, but my computer was being a little strange and it wasn’t clear if the comment was posted or not, so in case it has doubled up, I’m really sorry about that!!)

    I think it’s a Fleabulegg Vesper from Wong Tong Flu, China.
