Not to be Outdone…

The birds at the St. Louis Zoo were unusually friendly today. 

This red-eyed duck didn't offer to chat, but he certainly didn't mind my company…

And this pink and white green-billed water bird offered a gallant bow.

The energetic black water birds went all out to welcome us.

Even the bird-house birds were very friendly and unusually tame.

This one, who we learned had been hand-fed, allowed wonderfully close encounters…

Although the penguins were not to be outdone…

They took turns giving the zookeeper kisses.

    Thank you so very much!!! It was so much fun being able to get close. All the birds seemed very well cared for and were comfortable around humans. The black was were a total hoot….I actually had to jump up to keep the blue-eyed one from getting close enough to touch my camera. There were three of them and they toddled around all over.
