I managed a zoo visit today before the heat set in. We actually caught a light sprinkle and an overcast sky so here we are at 1:00 p.m. and it’s not even 80 yet. We topped out at 100 yesterday and 102 Friday. My knee did really well today after giving it a day off yesterday, I’m still work toward Saturday’s Renaissance Festival in Washington.
I was lucky to stumble across a 10:00 a.m. bird show at the zoo that showed 3-4 oredator birds in our zoo collection. There were two owls, a buzzard and some prey birds for a comic relief. Three ducks raced around a track to get to food at the finish line. It was hilarious see them actually lean into the curve to keep their momentum. I managed to capture the birds shown below. The buzzard flew so low to the ground it startled viewers in the stand. What a magnificent flying machine.
