The photographs atop this entry feature a Scarlet Ibis (Eudocimus Ruber) hanging out with a Pied Avocet (Recurvirostra Avosetta. In my recent episode (12-10-2019) of my Tuesday's Truths series, I mentioned that I'd seen the bird type known as Scarlet Ibis when I visited the zoo in Central Park.
I also mention that I subsequently "received some wisdom (from a Jane Goodall interview) about my feelings re animals and zoos, which I will discuss in my Saturday's Sequel post (12-14-2019)...," so here I am with my follow-up and a copy (posted directly below) of the interview where Jane Goodall discusses this somewhat controversial issue.
I admit that upon my seeing the Scarlet Ibis (Eudocimus Ruber) and Pied Avocet (Recurvirostra Avosetta) bird varieties (exactly two weeks ago when I was at the zoo), I did think anyone having an opportunity to see them there would find the expirence educational and it could potentially raise awareness re needs of wildlife, the Rain Forest, and our environment, yet I felt divided on how animals might feel when confined to a zoo.
My suspicion is that Ms. Goodall is correct for she knows far more about the needs of wildlife than almost anyone and with that thought here are a few pictures of other birds I saw at the zoo.
