 It is day 177 for me being home during the COVID19 pandemic. I continue my theme of cbhildren’s games with one that we used to play on the streets of old Brooklyn when we were kids. My sister and I could not remember our rules but we know for sure – that we played it. Monkey in the Middle, Piggy in the Middle, Pickle in a Dish, Keep Away or Pickle in the Middle, is a children’s game in which two or more players must pass a ball to one another, while a player in the middle attempts to intercept it. Yes, I have stretched the ‘monkey’ theme to include prosimians because – well, I liked the photos. Stay safe, avoid crowds and wear a mask this holiday weekend.

I hadn’t been to the Bronx Zoo in about a year and decided to head a bit north for a visit. This large zoo never disappoints. It is difficult to visit every habitat (but I sure did try). I missed a few key areas but will return soon.

An abbreviated visit to the Bronx Zoo this week found wonderful treasures wherever we went. Seeing old friends during the visit made it even more special. We did not get to see everything but we will return soon.

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.

We visited the Bronx Zoo about a month ago and were delighted to find so many babies. Included in these wonderful baby sightings were adorable bison, porcupine, tawny frogmouth, Inca tern, gaur, four Pere David fawns, baboon, ring-tailed lemur and the always charming young gorillas. It was a terrific visit. Go visit while they are still young and active.

7/1/16

We had a terrific visit to the Bronx Zoo last week. I hadn’t been since last August and figured we were due for a visit.  We planned a weekday jaunt before the holiday weekend and enjoyed the zoo almost to ourselves.  It is nice to watch adorable baby gorillas, a baby otter, baby Titi monkeys, baby lemurs, and two sea lion pups without the sounds of screaming children (nothing against kids – but sometimes they are very loud). Take a day (wear good walking shoes) and visit this wonderful collection of animals. Note: While the bald eagle remains the national bird, but it is no longer the United States’ only wildlife symbol. On May 9, President Obama signed the National Bison Legacy Act, officially making the bison the national mammal. The Bronx Zoo has a beautiful herd of these symbolic animals as does the Queens Zoo.BRONX7.2016

I haven’t been to the Bronx Zoo since May of 2014 and figured I was due for a visit.  We planned a weekday jaunt while school was in session and enjoyed the zoo almost to ourselves.  It is nice to watch adorable baby gorillas, a baby otter, baby Wolf’s guenon and a baby titi without the sounds of screaming children (nothing against kids – but sometimes they are very loud). Take a day (wear good walking shoes) and visit this wonderful collection of animals.

For all of the camera enthusiasts out there, I’ll be running a Fall Photo Workshop at the Central Park Zoo on  October 25 from 8:30 to 10:30. I will arrange some special pumpkin and other activities so you can get great, up-close animal shots – all before the zoo opens to the public. Here is a link to last year’s photos from the same event.  To register for the fun sign up here.BRONX9.2015

Gorilla Baby-Bronx ZooWe’ve been wanting to see the two gorilla babies at the Bronx Zoo and we were not disappointed. We also got some other grand surprises with a young Okapi, Wolf’s Guenon baby, Colobus baby,  Langur Baby, Brown ruffed lemur baby and the opening day of the Komodo dragon exhibit at Astor Court.  A fine visit indeed.BXZOOMAY2014

Nursing GiraffeIt’s been about six months since I last visited the Bronx Zoo.  It is a big zoo with lots of wonderful things to see. Comfortable walking shoes are a must.BRONXZOO4.2014
