      I tried to figure it out from your review and was unsuccessful, so...what's kept in this enclosure?
    • Hix
      Hmmm....... a few months ago now......Red-whiskered Bulbuls, Golden White-eyes, I think a pigeon species (possibly Marianas Fruit Dove), and one or two other softbills. There may have been Victoria Crowns or a pheasant species on the ground but I didn't see them. At the other end of the row of aviaries is an identical aviary to this but with denser foliage and housing a pair of Wrinkled Hornbills.

      Did you see the Tinian Monarchs while you were there?

      EDIT:

      Strike that from the record. The line I read on Honolulu Zoo's website was apparently no longer correct and the Honolulu Zoo does not have Tinian Monarchs. (Though they apparently are at Disney's Animal Kingdom and Memphis Zoo)
    • Hix
      That's probably correct, as I saw no mention of Tinian Monarchs (or monarchs of any kind).

      A shame really. Tinian Monarchs, Marianas Fruit Doves and Golden White-eyes would have made a great exhibit.

      They had several wild collected Tinian Monarchs two or three years ago. The birds did not adapt well to captivity...

      Also this aviary currently contains a breeding pair of Victoria Crowned Pigeons on a chick ,a pair of Golden White Eyes and a female pair of Red Vented Bulbuls.

      Redventeds or Redwhiskers?
    • FWC
      Blerg ,sorry ,Red Whiskered Bulbuls. Posting late at night can cause mistakes like that :p
