The birds on this page were in various enclosures throughout the zoo.
Cape Barren goose (native to Australia)
White-bellied bustards. The one on the right is sitting.
(The grid-marks on the image are the fence through which this photo was taken.
American flamingos squabbling with each other.
Lot of neck-folding to be done for a American flamingo to tuck its bill under a wing.
(a different breed which is why the coloring is different).
The legs on a greater flamingo really fold flat.
Female wreathed hornbill
Male wreathed hornbill
Ten-month-old Magellanic penguin CJ (standing beside the fish bucket).
Mature Magellanic penguin
The zoo has two bald eagles which they acquired after the birds had been injured.
This is the same eagle as in the prior image.
