Safari Park Birds

After school on Monday Marla invited me to come to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park. 
We explored for a few hours, focusing on areas we don't usually go to, like the entire African Loop.  

This metal sculpture looks like the work of Ricardo Breceda (the artist who made the Anza Borrego sculptures) but I could not verify this.

The Northern ground hornbill is one of the strangest birds I have ever seen. The casque on their bill is made of keratin and is used to amplify their vocalizations. 
Super fun, Mar!  Thanks for the invite.

  1. I think it's great that you took the "path less traveled". I love all the birds. Okay, not so much the hornbill. The face only a mother could love.

    You guys appear to be having an amazing adventure every time you go to SAP. I especially love the two flamingos entwined. Sweet.

    The first photo is very pro. I love the yellow accenting the eyes. Beautiful.
