provide entertainment for just about everyone!
In celebration of our 32nd Birthday, kids up to 12 years old are FREE with a paying

Throughout the day, CALM’s Animal Keepers will provide wildlife presentations

nature-related and civic organizations will be on hand to provide party guests with
information and give-a-ways.
No birthday will be complete without a bounce house, train rides and food/
beverage booths.
It won’t be a happy birthday without you! Please mark your calendars for Saturday,
May 16, and attend the festivities.
Who is New at the Zoo?
White-winged scoter and pintail duck are CALM’s recent residents
Talk about an odd duck, a White-winged scoter (Melantta
fusca) is just that!
A large black duck of coastal waters, the White-winged
scoter breeds farther inland than other scoter species and is
the one most likely to appear inland on lakes and rivers during
CALM’s scoter, “Sergio,” came to us from a facility in
Wisconsin. He is a drake (male) which are clearly defined by
their black body, all-white patch on their secondary feathers
and inverted comma-shaped white patch which surround
blue-gray eyes. The bill is orange, becoming red at the tip with
a large black “knob” at the base. Their legs and feet are also
Their large heads make them look as though they are
aerodynamically ill-designed, but they are great and proficient
divers. In the wild, they dive to feed on insects, small fish and
mollusks. At CALM, Sergio dines on smelt, kibble, greens...and
whatever he can steal from the Lilo, the beaver!
Another new resident in the beaver pond is a female
Northern pintail duck (Anas acuata) named Marcia who
came to us from the same facility in Wisconsin. This species
nests in open country with shallow, seasonal wetlands and
low vegetation and winter in a wide variety of shallow, inland
freshwater and intertidal habitats. They are dabblers and feed
on grain, seeds, weeds, aquatic insects, crustaceans and snails.
The females are dainty and their face and crown are tan
with a whitish chin. Their back and rump are brown with lighter
edges to the feathers and the upper breast is buff or tan with
a white lower breast and belly. The rear of the wing (speculum)
is a bronzy green with a black band and white rear edge. They
have a black bill and blue-gray legs.
The Northern pintail is among the earliest nesting ducks
in North America, beginning shortly after the ice-out in many
northern areas.
Northern pintail populations have been in decline. The
2014 State of the Birds listed them as “Common Birds in Steep
Both ducks are now residents at CALM due to wing injuries
that have rendered them non-flighted.
Visit Sergio and Marcia the next time you visit CALM!

only YOU can prevent wildfires!"
