Denver Zoo

Jen and the kids took me to the Denver Zoo again, today. I suspect from the screams of delight that this baby giraffe might have been the hit of the zoo, and it was certainly cute:


For me, though, the highlight of the zoo continues to be their remarkable collection of birds. Though I suspect it’s been around for awhile, this is the first time I’ve noticed this Secretary Bird, one I might not have even noticed if it hadn’t appeared on the cover of one of Shelley Power’s books:

Though I think my favorite bird continues to be this East African Crowned Crane:
