Hippotopia aviary

This big aviary was revamped to be re-opened in 2015. It houses northern bald ibisses, Rüppel's vultures, hammerhead, marabous stork and black crowned crane. I didn't see the last two species during my latest visit, but I have seen a marabou stork last year. It also housed Eurasian black vultures.

      Some extra information I couldn't fit in the description:
      Before the renovation, this aviary was home to northern bald ibissed (still in the aviary), little egrets, swamphen, spoonbills and more. It was a walkthrough aviary back then. Now there is a sort of an observation hut, where you can see the birds without fencing, a top view behind glass and windows inside the hippo buidling.
    There are no comments to display.
