Things With Wings

When you go to San Diego, of course you have to go to the zoo. Actually these pictures are from the Wild Animal Park, but close enough. I have so many that I've decided to break them down into 2 categories. Tonight is "birds" (+1 insect).



Awesome bird 'stache


















I'm a big pelican fan.

Look closely at the face. This thing could totally be a cartoon character.

r - i so want to go whale watching.

pg - do you mean the hornbill (second from the last)? The website for the Park says it's from Borneo:

We came back from the beach a week ago and I'm right there with ya JC, I am a huge pelican fan. Something about them is just cool. We ate at a really good seafood restaurant that displayed photographs from local artists on the walls and there was a great close up of a pelican. I wanted it but after being shell shocked from the bill, I completely forgot about the picture!
