      Nice looking, although the enclosure is completely indoor? Is the light artifitial or natural?

      It's quite a large enclosure but it is indeed all indoors. I believe the the light is natural, but I'll check next time I go to the Zoo (I haven't been to the zoo in absolutely ages because I've only had about 3 days of free-time in Warsaw in the last four months because of exams followed by two months in Australia, and I won't be back in Warsaw for another month while I'm in the UK). I have a feeling the light may be augmented with artificial light though, particularly with the short winter daylight hours.

      Ronnienl, did they have a female eclectus? They had a female until late last year I think but she died so I'm wondering if she has been replaced yet.

      There indeed seemed to be natural lighting through glass panels in roof. I am not sure if there was any artificial lighting. I did spot artificial lighting in the free-flying area though.

      LaughingDove, at the time of my visit there were no females present. So no replacement yet I'm afraid.
