      Interesting combo. Vulture's plenty big enough to hurt/kill the owl, but the owl is far more agile and since their preferences in exhibit area don't overlap I guess it would work ok.

      If my memory serves me right a long while back, maybe even a decade the zoo used to have king vulture free ranging in the walk through aviary. Anyone else remember this?

      @nczoofan I think they had turkey vultures in the aviary. This was before they started displaying macaws and parrots. I also seem to recall them having a magpie in there too, but that was back around 2000.

      Didn't they have think-billed parrots in here not to long ago?

      Yes, and they still do, but none of them are on this photo. All three of those species share the exhibit.
