BIRDS AT THE PAIGNTON ZOO, SOUTH DEVON, ENGLAND


These were birds I found at the Paignton Zoo when I was on holiday last June.













The male peacocks were parading around with their feathers fully fanned.  She didn't seem that interested.


There were three or four peackocks in this area strutting around just so, two you can see in the photo.  


I will be linking with the following memes as they become available, with my thanks to all our hosts.

  10. The ibis is a sinister looking bird...sacred to the Egyptians! Apparently you would be lynched if you killed an ibis in Alexandria back in the BC days

  16. Nice selection of birds - we get the Ibis in the wild here. Can actually be a bit of a pest if people start to feed them.
