This is the last zoo we visited on my recent visit to New England.  The Franklin Park Zoo is located in Boston, and in one of Frederick Law Olmstead‘s beautiful parks across the United States.  We delighted in the antics of 10 month old Baby Kambiri, the sweetest little baby gorilla and also enjoyed the beautiful one year old giant anteater, Jockamo.  Check out tow new videos below today’s montage.

Hurricane Irene allowed me plenty of home time to sort through my photos from my recent trip to New England.  Enjoy the adorable one week old flamingo chick that we spotted amongst a sea of pink feathers and very long legs at the Stone Zoo.

As Hurricane Irene blasts the NYC area and we are advised to stay indoors I flash back to last weekend’s quick trip to New England to visit friends.  The goal was whale watching but the whales were out of range so we easily opted for visits to three zoos in two days.  Here is the first of those visits (more later today). If you did not see my pre-hurricane Irene posts from yesterday, are homebound and looking for some visual entertainment check out this post: http://judylobo.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/deconstructing-casa-lobo/  and this one: http://judylobo.wordpress.com/2011/08/27/waiting/
Don’t forget to check out the adorable Mandrill baby video below today’s montage.

As I send out this Sunday ‘While at the Zoo’ photo montage it is raining buckets in Manhattan. My dog Benny braved his morning walk and is now rolling around on the rug attempting to dry himself off.  When the rain stops come visit the Central Park Zoo to see our Patagonian baby Cavy, featured in today’s montage at one day old.  While you are visiting don’t forget to see our snow leopards, two red pandas, baby ibis chick, Gus our popular polar bear and a fabulous collection of birds.

Today starts National ZooKeeper Appreciation Week.  If you go to a zoo this week – tell a keeper or two that you appreciate what they do.  I know that I will.

This week’s photo montage takes you to the Prospect Park Zoo in Brooklyn.  The zoo looks beautiful as do all of the residents including the delightful rock wallaby family, emus, golden lion tamarins, pallas cats, baboons, red pandas, red-eye tree frogs, otters and more.  Check out the Rock Wallaby family in this WCS video shot in May 2011 below the photo montage.

The Central Park Zoo has successfully hatched eight critically endangered Chinese merganser ducklings — a first for any North American zoo. The eight ducklings were hatched, April 26, 2011. The zoo has two breeding pairs of Chinese mergansers, a species of sea duck found in eastern Asia. The Central Park Zoo maintains the largest public collection of sea ducks and the only zoo-kept Chinese Mergansers in North America. This great zoo news was everywhere this week.  Click on any of the links below to see the story, photo and details.

Happy Father’s Day!  Enjoy this photo salute to some of the animal kingdom’s Dads. On a different subject, yesterday was the celebration of the sixth anniversary of the day I adopted my little dog, Benny.  Savor this little video I created last year to honor his fifth anniversary.
