I took this picture Saturday, April 5, 2008, during our monthly “Sunrise Surprise Stroll” at the San Diego Zoo. Our guide on these adventures is the remarkable Vik Cowan from the Zoo’s Education Department.  Vik had a little trouble getting Sammy out of his cage.  Seems the cage also holds his girl friend, Ria, and she does not like for Sammy to leave home.  But Vik got him out and told us about Sammy while feeding him a variety of nuts. Sammy and Ria, both blue hyacinth mccaws, can be seen most days sitting on their perch inside the Children’s Zoo area.
