Still 30 October 2017 in Rotterdam zoo Blijdorp. After the rhino and elephant babies, we saw these bongo antelopes.
As we walked on, we again saw some of the wild birds attracted to Blijdorp. A male blackbird feeding on berries. And in bushes a bit further, goldcrests.
After these smallest birds of Europe, a big aviary with much bigger birds.
Like this Rüppell’s vulture.
Also present in the aviary: hooded vultures, marabou storks, carrion crows, red kites and a paradise crane.
Next, the giraffe compound.
The giraffes often went inside the building, as food was hanging there.
The youngest giraffe could only just reach the food.
Sometimes, it stopped feeding.
Then, it went to the hay again.
House sparrows in the giraffe building.
On top of the giraffe building, starlings. They imitated the sounds of weaver birds in an aviary not far away.
