      Do you have a list of species on show in here?
    • LaughingDove
      I do, but I can't say it is complete due to the fact that I saw many unsigned birds and the large size and large amount of cover in the Rainforest Hall gives lots of hiding space. This is all the signed free-flying birds and other ones I saw:

      Black-necked Grebe, Lesser Whistling-duck, Black-necked Stilt, Black-headed Bulbul, Wisol Wattled Brush-turkey, Crested Wood-partridge, Green-collared Pheasant-pigeon, Victoria Crowned Pigeon, Nicobar Pigeon, Sulawesi Ground-dove, Black-naped Oriole, Great Blue Turaco, Bar-shouldered Dove, Emerald Dove, Great Cuckoo-dove, White-breasted Ground-dove, Asian Fairy Bluebird, Golden-breasted Starling, White-eared Catbird, Collared Kingfisher, White-rumped Shama, Red-whiskered Bulbul, Blue-naped Mousebird, Brazilian Tanager, Scarlet-headed Blackbird, Chestnut-capped Laughingthrush, Red-billed Leiothrix and Java Sparrow.

      Thank you very much

      No crested guan?
    • LaughingDove
      Nope, I didn't see any crested guan anywhere :(.

      The guan species I saw were horned guan, wattled guan and white-crested guan.

      @LaughingDove This is old but do you maybe happen to know if they still hold Argus pheasants? I visited September -18 and did not see any.

      @ThylacineAlive Sad :/ Do you know any public zoo that got them in Germany?
    • ThylacineAlive
      @Daniel Sörensen I saw them at the Berlin Zoo. According to ztl, four other collections in Germany hold them and someone who visited Walsrode in September as well claims they saw them.
