Houston Zoo – Vacation – Part 2-B

You were shown the Blue-chinned Macaws and five different Turacos in Houston Zoo – Vacation – Part 2. Now to show you some more of the neat birds from the Lord’s Creative Hand.

The next set of birds were outside and most were still damp from the rain.

I kept trying to get a photo of the “racket-tail”, but he never really got in the right position. This was a new species to see for me.

We have seen both the Cuckoos and the Malkohas before, but the Cuckoos were closer to us this time.

Then a couple of favorites, the Kookabura, except this time it was a Blue-winged Kookabura, and a Micronesian Kingfisher.
