Fowl Friends from the Galapagos Islands

So the next place mom visited on Santa Cruz Island in the Galapagos Islands was an inactive lava tube!  
JB:  Oooh, this looks a bit scary, mom!
Mom:  Just so you can see, I take my Big World Assignments very seriously, and will do what it takes to find you new animal friends!

Lookie here!  Mom found me a new Owl friend outside the lava tube, a Barn Owl we think.  He was sleeping because it was the daytime, so mom could not see his face.

The lava tube was a bit scary, and mom did not find any animal friends inside for me.  I wonder if there are snakes in there?

This next new friend mom found for me was near a small pond.  He is a White Cheeked Pintail Duck.  I bet he is glad that game is not called "Pin the Tail on the Duck!"

Mom got me a few Great Blue Heron friends, and this one was especially good at posing for mom's report.

So just when I thought mom was being really serious about her Big World Assignment, I found this picture of mom in "Paradise" and found out she was drinking beer here!
Mom:  Oh JB, I was working really hard on my Big World Report!  I was looking for some fowl friends for you near this foul water reservoir, and suddenly I got a little bit thirsty!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK here, and stop by JB's SMALL WORLD too, thanks!

JB,
Those look like some big birds. Your Mommy is very brave.

We think your Mom deserves a beer since she went in the lava tube for you. We like your new fowl friends!

I like the birds and especially the cave!

Does your mommy ever take you on these trips? Could be FUN.

Paws 'n Claws,

Your mom did an excellent job finding some very interesting feathered friends for you. The duck is especially pretty.

I didn't know owls slept standing up?

The great blue heron bends his knee backwards. the flamingos at the zoo do that too. I wonder why. Does your Mom know why?

The Heron's photo is surely good but that sleeping birdy is so nice! If we don't think about it's claws...
