Birds in the wonderful N.C. Zoo

We are so lucky to have a zoo as beautiful as ours in North Carolina. It is one you
want to visit often as you always discover something you missed before.
This is the spectacular Eclectus Parrot

A lovely Blue-winged Leafbird

A small bird that is easy to miss but with patience you discover the lovely Pekin Robin.

Not all birds are strickly "zoo" birds. I was able to capture this image of our native
female Cardinal outside the zoos rainforest
