These late summer mornings have been glorious for the humans and chimps alike so we thought we’d better take advantage of these beautiful days and have a breakfast forage on Young’s Hill. We harvested more fresh cattails from the wetlands on the property and made a beautiful forage with all manner of treats scattered around their outdoor enclosure.

Burrito and Missy:
Jody seems to continue to show extra relish for her time outside on these sunny mornings. Over hill and dale, she scoured the hill and made several trips back and forth from the greenhouse with her finds, but still found time to sit in the sun and keep a watchful eye on her friends as she enjoyed some chow:

Negra pulled a fast one this morning and after sitting outside the raceway for sometime observing the foraging scene, she returned to the greenhouse with seemingly zero interest in joining in and began building a nest. We thought the wind might be bothering her, but after receiving some personalized breakfast service in the greenhouse she went back outside with purpose and proceeded to forage in her cabin for some time where she found a cattail and the coveted pineapple top!
Sweet Annie was a particular delight this morning seemingly dancing her way around the hill throughout the forage:
