One of the fun parts of the Zoo is watching all the none zoo animals eating the zoo animals food. The birds are everywhere. Sparrows, ducks, geese, crows and magpies find a free meal. Crows and Magpies like eating with the bears. Where ever there is food there will also be field mice and voles. Lots to watch if you just look past the zoo animals.
These little sparrows are everywhere and many people disregard them as common birds. If you take a moment to watch them they are quite fun to watch. The fly here and there and land in the most amazing spaces. They like flying through these wire fences and when they land it is like they are landing in a picture frame.
Everyone wants to pet the horse but the best animal to pet on a farm is the barn cat. They don’t always like people but when you finally convince them to come to you they show their appreciation.
This cat has six toes. He liked being pet but when he was tired of it he simply walked into the corral with the horses where people couldn’t go. When I asked the youngest farm girl (probably five or six years old)what the cat’s name was her answer was quite simple. She said “His name is Six Toes” with a look like what else could it be.
