Pretty Bird!

Well…  after the toucans and the hornbill, this is what I would call a pretty bird.  But very hard to photograph.. they never stop moving.

At our zoo, the kids can purchase a small cup of sugary liquid to take inside with the birds… they birds swarm down and drink from the cups.  They sit on your head, your arms, your hands…  they don’t much care as long as you stand still long enough for them to latch on to you.

There is one problem with being in the cage area with the birds…. you don’t want to stand under them!  (if you know what I mean)….  not good after they drink a bunch of sugar!
