This Blue Macaw served up my favorite color in feathered form.
I’m letting the pictures tell the story for this post.
But, here’s a little background to get you started:
My brother and his wife and their son came down over the weekend and we had a great time, including a brief trip downtown and a big trip to the Fort Worth Zoo. Said brother is the guy who calls himself “Charles” when he comments here. Because that’s his name. That enough? Good.
Update: I wanted to clarify the next picture, based on an e-mail I received. My sister-in-law was on the phone checking on their dog, and Shannon’s grimace probably was just a split-second frozen in time to look much more serious than it was. Of course with two boys of four, we had some challenges, but we were having a good time in this picture.

Refreshment before closing the place down.
Come back and see us. Braaawwkk!
Oddly, I got good looks at completely different animals on this trip than I did on a previous zoo outing I posted.
