Picture is from their post on Zooborns, but I got to see and pet these adorable balls of fluff today while in Zoomobile's office and ZOMG SO CUTE!!!!
I was working the outdoor information booth on the upper plaza during a birdshow and I could hear was Dave's voice projecting across the zoo grounds and all I wanted to do was drop everything a go. I only managed to go to one birdshow this summer when normally I see one every single week. At least that one show was a Dave show? Of course he randomly started talking in a Jersey Shore accent and was fist pumping but it was a Dave show so I wouldn't expect anything less lol!
For the first time in probably ten years I may not be going to the Labor Day birdshow. The "spectacular" aspect has gone downhill over the years (basically ever since Dave quit participating in them) where comparatively the Halloween themed birdshows have gotten more and more epic. I hope they bring back the Harry Potter show from a couple years ago because Weston as Harry and Rebecca as Hermoine was A+.
Speaking of birdshow I got to view an advance copy of the fall Zoo Tracks newsletter and there's lots of birdshow between an article by Kam (I discovered her full name is Kamerie. I did not know that.) about her trip to South America to the fact the staff profile is on Dave. I was interested to learn (and yet was not even remotely surprised) that he initially was planning on getting into music before the whole birdshow maestro thing fell into his lap. In fact the thought of working at a zoo didn't even cross his mind until after seeing a birdshow at the zoo. Which is kinda funny as I never really went to that zoo a ton myself until I saw my first birdshow and then suddenly I was going all the time just to see that birdshow. Visiting more often is what made me decide to start volunteering, and volunteering is what got me into photography. So basically - yay birdshow! :D
I don't know if it's noticable from this entry, but there's this one dude at the zoo named Dave that I've pretty much hero worshiped since I was like 13 years old. Can you tell? lol
