Magnificent Bird at San Diego Zoo

untitled (87 of 104)During the month of October there are no admission charges to the San Diego Zoo for youngsters 11 years and under. On Saturday, Jerry and I loaded up Brady and Ella and we four walked about for more than five hours. During that time, we saw this glorious bird, who first showed its magnificent eyelashes to great advantage.

  1. These birds are so interesting!!! they’re called secretary birds because the man(european) who discovered them thought they looked like a secretary because of their black tights and ‘pencils’ on their head. they actually kill and eat snakes and lizards by punching them and tossing them with their feet to break up the bones!!! Such amazing birds!!!! the African version of the Seriema!
