More wild birds at the zoo

Roseate spoonbill scratching.

Spoonbill sitting on the nest.

She's crying "It's your turn to sit on these hard sticks."

Carolina wren. I don't see these too often here.

Great egret flying by.

Just a few more pictures from my last recent trip to Lowry Park zoo.  I'm really keeping my fingers crossed on seeing spoonbill babies. I'm going to stop by there every weekend to check on them. It's only 10-12 minutes away and I have a membership so I may just stop in and run back to the rookery to see if any babies are present. Although, I sometimes get distracted by other cute animals.

Go and check out more MyWorld images at the MyWorld Site! My World


  1. Fabulous images yet again.
    And the captions make me giggle.
    I look forward to your weekly posts.

  2. Love the spoonbill giving her mate the what-for. Those sticks sure don't look comfy, do they?
    Thanks for keeping an eye on the nest. Spoonbill babies must be wonderful to see!
