Sahel; Great Aviary Signage

Didn't see Hottentot teal or Shoveler. Did see a Superb starling though which is not featured on the sign.

      Didn\'t see Hottentot teal or Shoveler. Did see spur-winged lapwings and a Superb starling though which are not featured on the sign.

      Who needs latin names anyway?! ...

      There isn't any English education either.

      Absolutely. It's really disappointing that after all this time, and all that money spent, a zoo operated by a museum doesn't think labelling matters..:(

      most of these are obvious to me with my smattering of French and knowing a bit about birds, but what is a Chevalier gambette? A redshank?
    • IanRRobinson
      Correct, and if they'd bothered to add Tringa totanus to the label we would have known immediately...:rolleyes:

      Ugh. Not good at all. Two little words too much to add to each sign? Really?

      I tend to think zoos wherever they are should at least have common names in a few languages, but at the bare minimum the scientific name should be there with the name in the zoo's local language. Really, it should. There's no excuse.

      @Childonias you're right! it's a redshank (Tringa totanus)

      I agree with the lack of Scientific names, but...The drawings are not sufficient? Really?
