      Saw quite a group of these at the edge of the aviary

      wow these guys are amazing birds. I saw them on Sulawesi a couple of months ago and they were one of my favourite species there.

      Can anyone tell me how common they are in captivity in the UK or elsewhere?

      ISIS lists 17 European (in the UK, Chester, Bristol and Waddesdon), 14 North American and 2 Asian zoos with the species (as ever with ISIS, this will likely be an underestimate, particularly in Asia). (http://app.isis.org/abstracts/Abs66708.asp#1.0)

      Lovely birds.
