Cock of the Walk

_MG_1823It’s easy to see why this bright orange bird is called the “Cock of the Walk.”  It’s an expression that evokes flashiness, bossiness, and dominance over those lesser beings in the barnyard. This Andean Cock of the Walk at the Parker Aviary in the San Diego Zoo today was making a lot of noise as befits a Cock of the Walk in mating season.

Travel safe.  Have fun.
