    The kingfisher is the only non-drab species I have seen. Just because they have streaks of colour, that doesn't make them colourful because they aren't full of colour. :p
    I guess it all makes sense anyway because they are trying to camouflage in with the drab English countryside... :p

    I miss the Lesser Flamingos and Saddle-Billed Storks that used to live in the Rift Valley Aviary (now called River Valley Aviary) at the Jacksonville Zoo. Saddle-Billed Storks also used to live in the Wattled Crane exhibit. The breeding pair in the aviary were gone as of before February 2011 and the last time I saw the pair in that used to live in now Wattled Crane exhibit was January 2013 and at that time they were living with the giraffes. I also miss the African Buffalo that used to live in the exhibit where the Okapis do now.

    I miss the Asian elephants at Buffalo Zoo. I know there's no way for them to come back, but I'm always happy to see elephants.
    I miss the melanistic leopard at the Bronx Zoo. It wasn't in a great exhibit, but he was a beautiful animal.
    I miss the roadrunner at the Queens Zoo.

    Woodland Park is my hometown zoo, although I haven't actually been there is over half a decade now. Travel is expensive ;-;

    I miss the elephants there a lot, I still keep tabs on how Sri and Bamboo are doing at their respective zoos. I also miss the old nocturnal house.
