Last week found us on the West Coast visiting family.  A trip to the terrific, ever growing San Francisco Zoo is always on a West Coast agenda. Enjoy some of my photos below.

Today is my fall photography workshop at the Central Park Zoo.  The class is sold out and should be lots of fun — think pumpkins.

There are lots of other fun and interesting classes going on at the zoo through March.  For instance, on Saturday, November 5th, our terrific Vet Tech is giving a class on what it is like to take care of all of the animals in the zoo.  Check it out and the other classes here.

Fall fun for all at the Central Park Zoo.  This week’s photo montage features some of our beautiful mammals.  Check out Gus, our polar bear, Amaya, one of our red pandas, a snow leopard, one of our three coatis, a sea lion, snow monkey, cavies and a mound of banded mongooses. Also included is our fast growing Baby Irene Hope, born during Hurricane Irene and Oliver, one of our pot-bellied pigs. Those sensational ducks are rajahs, pink-eared and harlequin. Come visit!

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.

This is penguin molting season at the Central Park Zoo.  Feathers, feathers and more feathers.  In a few weeks it will be all over and they will be soaring through the water once again. Come visit!

There are only seven spaces available for my Fall Foliage Photography Workshop at the Central Park Zoo on October 23, 2012.  Dont’ be left out in the falling leaves.  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.

After molting season is over you can watch the King, Chinstrap and Gentoo Penguins swim for their fish at the Central Park Zoo:

I thought sharing some photos of adorable baby animals residing at the Central Park Zoo would give you a much needed smile on this most difficult of anniversary days. Smile at our baby banded mongooses, baby Patagonian cavy, Baby Irene Hope (the lamb born during Hurricane Irene), a Nicobar Pigeon chick, a young Red Panda, a very wet snow monkey, two gorgeous snow leopards and a very fast growing scarlet Ibis chick.

Check out the Fall/Winter Programs being offered at the Central Park Zoo including four of my photography workshops. You can also now register on line.

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.

The four California sea lions (Scooter, April, Katie and Edith) at the Central Park Zoo never fail to dazzle the crowds with their daring do, acrobatics and just plain fun.  Come visit and see them at their best at their three feeds – 11:30, 2 and 4 each day.

Don’t forget to check out our now three year old Katie when she was just a pup (2008) at the Bronx Zoo below today’s photo montage.
