The Tropical Rain Forest is a great place to spend a lot of time on a cold day...or actually any day

The always lovely Scarlet Ibis is a real eye catcher.

This quiet, definitely not gaudy member of the duck family, is a Hottentot Teal.
Just for the name it is worth seeing.

This sighting was definitely the absolute high point of my trip. They are a couple of
White-Crested Mousebirds who are sitting so sweetly together. I recall a
time when I was courting my wife, Sue, sitting on a park
bench just enjoying the moment.

Of course, we didn't do what these birds did next. Yep, they a making whoopee
and they look to be deeply in love and definitely not at all
embarrassed doing it in public.
