      What happens in the show, as its an interesting selection of animals!

      Mostly a bird show; commentary is in Spanish with children's / family film music in the background. I've broken down into stages what I can remember happens at a given time:
      • Tawny eagle flies from one perch to another
      • Verraux's eagle owl perches, whilst grey-crowned cranes walk in the middle of the arena and a palm nut vulture circles the stalls
      • Southern ground hornbill then runs out, pecks and breaks open an artificial ostrich egg
      • Bateleur eagle flies across the arena
      • 3 vultures (Ruppell's and white-backed) fly across the arena
      • Two of the vultures (I believe the white-backed) stay around the stream in the centre and are thrown food by a handler. They are briefly joined by a black-backed jackal.
      • Marabou and Abdim's storks fly out. An African fish eagle flies out too. (I think the fish eagle normally / used to 'fish' food from the stream in the middle of the arena.)

      Not all the animals on the sign were used but I'm not sure if it was a slightly 'downsized' show given the small audience, hot weather, and timewasting behaviour from a few of the birds. :)
