Early Fall visit to the Oregon Zoo

Early Fall visit to the Oregon Zoo

The Oregon Zoo recently finished up their new “Predators of the Serengeti” exhibit. So, being currently unemployed, but with a Zoo Membership in hand, I decided to do a nice early morning visit.

Bald Eagle at the Oregon Zoo

Taking the first left the first animal we get to see is the American Bald Eagle. While making a huge come back in the wild, the Eagles in the Zoo’s exhibit were injured in the wild and rescued. Most are released back into the wild once they’re better.

Saw-Whet Owl

At the end of Eagle Canyon is small area with several different types of native birds. One is the Saw-Whet owl, which is apparently their call. Interestingly, I’ve never heard this call before so now I have let another goal.

Next up is the Elephants, which have quite a special history at the Oregon Zoo. Not sure who this is, but they were outside by themselves at the time.

In the old Alaska exhibit is the new “Predators of the Serengeti“. This reintroduces Cheetahs and Lions back to the Zoo and brings African wild dogs in too.

Then we go to see the Black Rhinoceros who always seems to be in this same spot.

And last of all, the Amur Tigers, who are always sunning themselves. Granted there are a lot more animals in the Oregon Zoo then shown here. But these represent my favorites. I hope you enjoy these pictures.
