The Stripes Looked Brown to Me

I never saw a zebra this close before. A relative to the horse and donkey. Love that mane!

These photos were taken last Friday at the Food Revolution Day, Pittsburgh.

Zebra foals are supposed to be brown and cream at birth according to what I could google. Depends on the breed.

The hair might be brown but the skin is black underneath?

This one didn’t look that young to me.

But I was so surprised to see the brown color in the light.

Lots of lines and patterns with zebra stripes and chain link fence.  On my way home…..

 

 


Distant View Through a Chain Link Fence- Close, Closer and Closest

Drove by and it was a blur through the chain link fence.

(Don’t worry, Steve was driving. I was the passenger.)

What do you think these are?

Guess no one flew South.  Read that the Canada Goose is now a year round creature of urban environments.   And the plural is Canada Geese- not Canadian Geese.  You probably already knew that, Mary Lynn!


How Many Deer Do You See?

Three is the answer.

Steve says he is glad he is not a deer. These are woods IN the city.


What I Saw Out the Window at School

The cropped version and the original.   You get a better feel for the place in the second, original, full size.

WILD turkeys but they seem fairly domesticated and brave ( or not too bright?). There are a lot of them in the area (remember my first day of school post with the family of turkeys on the sidewalk.)

Urban turkeys.
