Go Condors, Butterflies and Turtles!

by Kimberly A. Cook

I know this is Super Bowl weekend and these teams are not in the game, but they’re still winning! Since this week we’re celebrating victories, thought it was a great time to check out the Oregon Zoo’s conservation accomplishments for 2017.

And I’ve never seen anything cuter than a pygmy rabbit. Seriously! But the western pond turtle is a looker too.

Stock up on chips and dips, don’t forget Kitten Bowl Five on the Hallmark Channel, and root for the condors, butterflies, turtles and pygmy rabbits!

Have a great, safe weekend and Happy Quirky Friday!

Our Condors Have Landed!

Checked back in with the Oregon Zoo and look at the big birds we’ve got! Seems these three fellows have graduated from the Condor breeding program and will now take up residence at the Oregon Zoo. I think they may be the ultimate “Three Amigos!”

Is it just me or are these amazing birds showing off for the cameras? Endangered and the largest birds on the North American continent, these guys know they’re hot stuff. The public can’t see them until May 24, so they’re getting used to their new bachelor pad.

Check them out and have a great weekend. Happy Quirky Friday!

P.S. Go Trailblazers! Rip City! (Thinking LaMarcus learned some high-flying moves from our condors!) Must go round-up snacks for game time!
