Favorite Zoo Critter: Beautiful Bird From Tibet

Most people go to the National Zoo because it's free and you can see pandas and tigers and elephants.
I took this photo of a rare species of bird found in the mountains of Tibet called Temminck's Tragopan.
This is the attractive male strutting his stuff next to the cage's fence.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Free admission, easy access via Metro subway
  • Cons:Expensive food (Bring your own lunch and have a picnic)
  • In a nutshell:An educational and entertaining way to spend the day in DC

    Confucius – you “attractive male strutting his stuff” (I really hope you are attractive). You didn't tell me that you were interested in "behind the scenes of behinds"!!! Kinky exhibition but doable, will we charge free admission for that as well?
