I've realized that you may have other photos that you'd like to label. The Lowry Park Zoo has a very nice web site to help with any other photos (even those you didn't upload!).
As this photo was taken in a zoo setting, please list it as the habitat (by name). Also, the zoo is in Tampa. Please update the location. Your tags were great and really what allowed me to ID this bird. If you have any questions, please let me know.
