 I am going to start posting some of the photos I was able to get of the beautiful birds I saw at the Sedgwick County Zoo.  As I mentioned I have a like/hate relationship with Zoos.  They seem to have a really nice area for all these birds though in their Tropical Habitat.  I will never be able to travel to the countries these birds are in so this is the only way I will ever see them.  I am starting off with an obvious Zoo pic because I am trying to get an ID on the bird on the right.  I have Googled it like crazy but cannot find a match and the Zoo did not have an ID of it on their website.  The one on the left is beautiful and is a Spangled Cotinga from South America.  I think the other is beautiful as well but I have no idea what it is.  They had just been fed when I got this image.

Edit:  So I got an ID from someone on a site I visit.  It is another South American bird called a Black-faced Dacnis and is male.
