Little Penguins at Adelaide Zoo

The Adelaide Zoo has been very much in the news lately. I refer to the recent attack on one of the Flamingos in the zoo. Fortunately the injured bird is well on the way to recovery and back on exhibit. The incident has created quite a stir in the media both here in South Australia and throughout the world I believe.

I try to get to visit the zoo several times a year, being a Life Member. I mainly go to see the excellent bird collection. I usually take my camera along too because there are many opportunities to get good close up photos of many species, some of which I would have trouble getting shots of in the wild.

Today I feature two photos taken on a visit last year. Little Penguins (also called Fairy Penguins) are a naturally occurring species here in South Australian waters, with several places where they regularly breed along our coast and on the islands near the coast.

  2. I recently heard about the incident concerning the Flamingo. It was actually quite sad and alarming.
