DC Zoo 动物园

National Zoological Park

Many animals are either hiding or being tucked away for the winter but we weren’t the only visitors. It’s warm for February so sizable crowds was at the park.

There is indeed a bird named Baltimore Oriole.

This colorful bird, Micronesian Kingfisher is extinct in the wild. They’re originally from Guam, Palau Islands, Micronesia, and died from tree snakes. There are about 150 (?) in captivity and (yes someone is keeping a tap on them) Saint Louis Zoo  (58 in 2002) called them the Stradivarius of birds.
