Many of the birds in this big exhibit at Perth Zoo have been damage in some way.
Broken wings loss of toes etc, this one though looks faultless. They are all very well
cared for and fed and some are breeding. This one could be part of the crane or heron
family, of this I am not sure. If any of you looking in does know please post it.
Thanks to all who commented on the young lion, he is rather special.

Have a great day everyone……..

Jocelia…….

Wow, what a paint job! Worlds away compared to our conservative looking blue heron. I read and consume plenty of National Geographic type literature and do not recall this special heron. Must be fairly rare. Amazing colours! TG

I thought 'Big Bird' was yellow (Sesame Grin). This would appear to be a black-necked stork, Jocelia, and a handsome one at that.

He looks very tall Jocelia.
