The bird collection at the San Diego Zoo

Filed under: San Diego Zoo — Tags: , — washaw @ 6:00 am

The collection of birds at the San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park is extensive.   Several walk-thru aviaries provide visitors close up contact with many of the birds.  Other birds are part of shows presented daily at several locations throughout the zoo.  During a early morning behind the scenes tour I had an opportunity to meet Keeper Mike Grue who stopped to talk with us.   His wagon was loaded up with special dishes he had prepared with care for each bird in his keep.  In one of the dishes we saw some live grubs, still moving around, a delight for some special bird eager for Mike to arrival.

  1. I think I would have to spend days at the zoo to see all it has to offer.
