There are a number of raptors at the zoo.
This barred owl sat quietly on its perch. A nocturnal bird, it may wait until evening to become more vocal.
This red-tailed hawk obligingly turned its back to us to let us admire its rusty tail feathers. I had to keep reminding myself that these birds could not survive in the wild. I hate to see birds caged.
When I got home the moon was rising -almost full.
Mammal pictures to come...
