Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Tampa Zoo: Baby Marabou Stork

Copyright 2016, CABS for Reflection's Flora and Fauna

Our visit to the Tampa Lowry Zoo was all about babies.  Some are cute, and some have faces and bodies only a momma could love.

This is a marabou stork, born February 23 or 27, 2016.  (The light gray line in the middle of the photo is the fencing used to surround the display, to protect the babies from us, the humans.  Sony III and I just zoomed enough to see the baby and make the fencing not quite so obvious.)

Here are both of the chicks and one of the parents.  When we left the area I saw one of the parents (the dad?) carrying in a 4 foot stick to add to the nest.  You can clearly see the wires in this photo.
