Turkey!

The new turkey at in the Mountain Forest exhibit at the Aquarium just about scared the wits out of me today. Walking around the exhibit setting out the food pans as usual, and then there's this giant black blob flying toward me!

It's been a couple of months since my last volunteer shift, so the turkey is a new addition. Seems pretty friendly, and followed me around the exhibit.

The barn owl chick that hatched last month has gotten pretty big. Shouldn't be too long before it's either transported to a new facility or released into the wild.
