Marveling at the San Diego Zoo!

I spent about 2 hours at the San Diego Zoo the other day. Had some time and brought my camera. Join me on this journey to only a few areas (the Hummingbird House, plus Gorillas and Orangutans and a special surprise at the end of my journey). My short visit was jam packed with memorable bursts of images!

Feel free to click on each photo to see more detail.

First, I visited the Hummingbird House or Aviary, which is a great little secret but tucked away and a bit challenging to find! As you enter the Zoo, turn left towards the Discovery Area towards the Sky Ride. Best to ask a guide..It’s to the right after the Reptile House,  look for the red railing…More about the Kenton C. Lint Hummingbird Aviary

I snapped away at some very colorful birds as well as hummingbirds which enjoy the lush surroundings with flowers, nectar and feeders.

Hummingbirds

I love hummingbird watching!

One of these days, I’d like to go on a trip to explore the different types!

Gorillas

It was such a special treat to see the baby with Mom!

Orangutans

I also visited the Orangutan habitat. More joy with another young one to watch with Mom and Dad!

Finally, my big surprise was to spot a peacock near the squawking in the flamingo area, alone in a corner. I waited until he faced front. What  beautiful plume feathers! Take a look!
