New Gallery: Nashville Zoo at Grassmere

Congo, the Male Giraffe - Nashville Zoo

Note: I posted this a few days ago, but forgot to actually link to the gallery. That is now corrected.

After some recent visits to the Nashville Zoo, located at the historic Grassmere Farm, I have enough photos to create a new Extended Gallery on the website. While Congo, the male Masai Giraffe, doesn't seem thrilled about it, you may be if you like that kind of thing.

Rhinocerous Hornbill

I thought I'd share a couple of bird photos, also. Above is a Rhinoceros Hornbill. The first thing you notice about this bird is the large colorful curved casque atop it's bill. The species is native to places like Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

Below is the Great Horned Owl is one of the largest owl species in the Americas. One of the most noticable features are the large tufts that resemble ears, but they are not ears. The owl is not part of an exhibit, but is seen during one of the shows.
