  1. Nicely done! I like how you got past the zoomesh on the falcon exhibit, and that you saw the barbet at all--those guys are not easy to find all the time. And the hadadas are more often heard than seen. Looking forward to part two!

  2. Wonderful captures. Gosh, I haven't been to Franklin Park Zoo in 40+ years. Last time I was there they were giving away bunnies and I talked my aunt letting me get one, much to my parents chagrin, but they got use to the idea. Funny memories. Thanks for sharing these pictures that brought back so many of my own memories.
