2021-02-06 Edinburg Scenic Wetlands

2012-05-06 Zoo’s Safari Park Again

Knowing the annual pass for the zoo I bought to gain access to the nesting colonies of egrets and Ibis was due to expire soon, I made three visits to both the San Diego Zoo and the Safari Park in May and June 2012. While the creatures in their collections are often amazing, I still … Read more

This lake has numerous Islands within its boundaries suited to nesting waterfowl and … Read more

2016-03-23 Wednesday Begins My Homeward Leg My stay with Jerry in Albuquerque was wonderful. My only regret was that I took so many pictures without processing or posting to my website that I’m returning home with a big job ahead of me.
