Category: Aviary

  Sorry to say that I have not been to the Zoo within the last couple months.  Spring cleaning, lawn preparation, and a new deck project, have really been taking up too much time.  I am hoping to perhaps get away within the next weekend or two for a visit to Henry Doorly.  

   What with spring ending and summer warming up, it is a perfect time to take a walk around the Zoo.  All the animals will be outdoors this time of year, and perhaps we will get a chance to spot a few new additions at the Zoo.  It is after all, Spring / Summer time and I am sure we are bound to spot at least a couple new baby animals here or there. 

   So for some, it’s Spring fever time in the midlands.  For me, I think it is more like Zoo fever time, as the last time we visited, it was just after the snow had melted!

   See you at the Henry Doorly Zoo!


Take a walk around the Zoo and you will eventually come

across the Dairy Farm area.  This is not about the Dairy Farm

area, but rather what is behind and up on the hill. 

Behind the Dairy desert building, you will find a small aviary

full of some of the most colorful parakeets to be found

anywhere.  Again, not what you expect to run across in

outdoor Nebraska.
