Rainy Zoo Day Fun September 25, 2011

Posted by judylobo in Animal Video, Baby Animals, Birds, Central Park Zoo, Nature, photography, Wildlife, Zoo.

So what do you do ‘while at the zoo’ when it is pouring outside?  I spent lots of time in the Central Park Zoo’s Tropical Aviary. Without bias I can honestly say that it is the best tropical aviary of any that I have seen of all of the zoos I have visited.  It is a delight of color, sounds and flight.

In today’s montage you can spot our fledged Scarlet Ibis chick in the second row on the left.  The video below spotlights some Scarlet Ibis chicks that I saw at the Bronx Zoo in 2007.

Want to take some photos like the ones you see below?  There are a few spaces available for my Fall Foliage Photography Workshop  at the Central Park Zoo on October 23, 2012.  Sign up – it will be fun. The last part of the workshop will find us going to the Apple store for some fun lessons in editing from their resident genius gang.

I have been to the “tropics” at CPZ literally hundreds of times. I am amazed that Lobo can capture with her camera things others cant see with the naked eye. What beautiful photos of these beautiful creatures.

these little gems are great to see up close and flying away so quickly. as we two photographers think your work is excellent… as good as corinthian leather . our cats enjoyed the views too.
