Zoo Birds


During the Easter break, we visited Belfast zoo and here are a few of the birds I tried to photograph.
This is the Lilac Breasted Roller from Africa.

Inside the tropical bird house, I looked up to find this bird peering at us but I couldn't find out what it was,

The Toucan was behind glass, sorry about the glare.


Linking with Eileen's Saturday's Critters HERE

Hope you have a lovely weekend and thanks for your visit!

  13. These are great Christine. Always fun to see what birds they have at the zoos. The one staring at you made me laugh. I think if I looked up and saw that kind of intensity I would wonder if Alfred Hitchcock was around the corner lol.
