my birthday at the zoo
April 23, 2009
so this post is a little overdue, as my birthday was the 3rd of march. i flew solo to the oregon zoo and it was great. a lot of the animals i don’t normally see where out and about. normally i start at the great northwest exhibit and work my way down and around, but this time i just sort of wandered aimlessly.

there are two new wolves that arrived to the zoo from minnesota in december. the mother is a gorgeous silver color and named cheyanne, and the pup is named yazhi.
the elk were doing exactly what they always do. sitting there.
thought this was a good promo pic if these sheep were in a baaaand. i’m sorry.
had a great long moment with this bobcat. we just stared at each other for 30 or 40 minutes. children would come up and get right up to him and tap on the glass and he would just look around them straight at me.
this bear looks so soft!
and i finally went in and fed the lorikeets. this is a lot of fun. it’s only a dollar and at one point i had 4 or 5 of them on me.
