This Crested Caracara has an injured wing and stays at the Brevard Zoo, yet on the way to the zoo, we find them along the way sitting on power lines. Florida is one of the two states in the United States that has Caracaras in the wild. What is the other state? What other places do Crested Caracaras live?

Your challenge is to find out by searching.

“With all my wisdom I tried to understand everything that happens here on earth. And God has made this so hard for us humans to do.” (Ecclesiastes 1:13 CEV)

Tawny Frogmouths at the Zoo

Tawny Frogmouth at Brevard Zoo 4-3-18 by Lee

At the Brevard Zoo recently, we saw two Tawny Frogmouths. They were in one of their aviaries. [An aviary is a large area where birds can fly freely.] It also makes it easier to take photos, because you are in the aviary with the birds and critters. You do not have to take the photos through cage wires, etc.

“Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily.” (Psalms 102:2 KJV)

The Tawny Frogmouth (Podargus strigoides) is a species of frogmouth native to and found throughout the Australian mainland and Tasmania. Tawny frogmouths are big-headed, stocky birds often mistaken for owls due to their nocturnal habits [night time] and similar coloring.
