We went to the zoo today... me and the entire first grade from Colton's school. Can you say, exhausting? I think all first grade teachers are saints. And Kindergarten teachers and second grade teachers and well, you know what I mean.
This is Stan. He is a white-naped crane who scared the pajeebers out of us when he pecked the plexiglass. All we wanted was a close up view of him... so he crouched down and then snuck up on us and when he stood up he was literally face to face with us. And when Colton put his palm up to the glass? He pecked at it!
Do you see his eyes? Yeah, he is an omnivore... he eats plants and small mammals... and if you look closely at his eyes, you'll see small boys just might be on the menu!
He pecked and pecked and us.
Until little Aubri said "he is creeping me out, lets boogie." So long Stan.
And one big canadian goose.
"Did ya hear the latest on the missing prairie dog? You know, Stan is just two exhibits over... I'm just sayin..."
