    Some bird pics & vid at the SD Zoo

    Sorry they aren't too great, but I'm still in a back brace with weight/lifting/moving restrictions
    They are the less-bad pics though













    And a pretty Bird of Paradise singing and dancing for his lady-friend

    Man... this makes me miss Australia so much. My fascination with ornithology has ebbed since moving away.

    Liz: thanks!

    mato: I have no idea. I got some other blurry pics that um... I think one of these is actually a hornbill and I don't think the one you're asking about is, but I know nothing about birds. God these pics are awful. I wish I could use my back already :







    I think these are some like... wrinkled hornbill or something? I forget... oops.








    Should you drop by San Diego, there are at least three walk-in aviaries (including a hummingbird one) and tons of huge cages filled with birds all over the place from all over the place (arctic, australia, bunch of eagles, etc.). I did it no justice today.

    This is getting me excited for my new job, photographer in the lorikeet aviary at Busch Gardens.
