    Thank you for posting this list! I haven't been to the Sedgwick County Zoo since March of 2013, but it has an impressive collection - especially the bird representation! I'm happy to see that almost all of the birds and mammals that I remember from 2013, were still present in 2019. I hope to make a trip up there this summer - It's less than a four-hour drive for me. Would love to see the Keas, the Buffon's Macaw, and the Crested Quail Dove.
