Cleveland Zoo Field Trip
February 17, 2008

Report & Species Photos
Stan Searles, Curator of Birds and Aquatics at the Cleveland Zoo gave WCAS a personally guided tour of the Birds of the Rainforest at the Cleveland Zoo.

Stan also took the time to tell us about ups and downs of Zoo bird populations. There's lot more to it than you  might think. Thank you, Stan.

Lunch at the Rainforest Cafe was very good, followed by a walk around the African Safari and the Northern Trek.
