We spent five fun-filled days with a great friend in Albuquerque NM last week. She had been inviting me for many years to come visit the Bosque del Apache refuge to see the wintering grounds of the sandhill crane, snow geese and more. We delighted at both sunset and sunrise to see the birds flock by the thousands. The Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge is located in southern New Mexico. It was founded in 1939 and is administered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.  An eight mile loop allows us to view these amazing animals without disturbing them.

Fall is quickly fading from view and the drearier winter colors are upon us. A final photo montage look at the glorious autumn offerings of color, taste and design.

Last Sunday’s Fall Photo series at the Central Park Zoo was lots of fun. The rain held off and everyone (especially our animals) were enriched by our many pumpkin experiences. One more photo series (called Valentine Tails) will be held on Sun, Feb 11, 2018 8:30AM – 10:00AM. Sign up now – it fills up quickly

I took my annual trip north to New England to visit good friends last week. We laughed, had great food, enjoyed the autumnal leaves and of course, visited a zoo or two. Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon MA is always on our list and does not disappoint. We will be back.

Not much to say other than it is October, and I love bats.

I wanted to visit the Bronx Zoo one more time before the cold weather sets in. Winter visits are fun too but who knows when we will get snow this year?  My visit proved great – highlighted by an adorable snow leopard cub, sea lion pup, growing tiger cubs, baby squirrel monkey, young gorillas and Angolan monkey and much more. I logged in at 7.5 miles but it was worth every step.

One of my favorite books as a kid was ‘ A Tree Grows in Brooklyn’ by Betty Smith. Today’s photo montage salutes the Prospect Park Zoo which grows (just like that tree) with each of my visits. I have mentioned that the Prospect Park Zoo was my childhood zoo and it still holds a special place in my heart. Go visit!

Couldn’t resist the play on words about Toledo in today’s title. I have made umpteen trips to Toledo to visit good friends who have relocated there in the past few years. Every visit gets better and better. The Toledo Zoo grows more expansively each year and it is always a fun and adventurous place to visit. A shout out to Jeff, Jason, John, Chuck, Karen, Juan, Baby Olive, Juba, Leela, Picasso and Zack for the fun and laughs. I will be back soon.

Thought I would share some of my very favorite faces that I work with at the Central Park Zoo. Their beauty makes my job simple.
