American Bison, Rosamond Gifford Zoo
It has been a couple of years since I visited the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse. I typically went out in January for their annual photo contest. Now they do a contest every month but I felt I needed to stick to tradition and visit in the beginning of the year.
I thought by picking a weekend without an event it would lessen the crowds. I was even at the zoo as soon as it opened. My plans were slightly torpedoed. The zoo became crowded pretty quickly. I made the rounds outside first and by the time I was back to the buildings it was difficult to spend even a few minutes at each display alone.
I did manage to get to the American Bison before they were shepherded into their building so the employees could clean their paddock and refresh their food. I liked this one as he showed me how easy it is to stick out your tongue and touch your nose…
I’ve been wanting to go to our zoo for photos forever. My photo group is going today, but I have to fly to DC today. Meanwhile I love your bison!
Thanks Dawn. Safe trip.
