      In March Warsaw zoo announced arrival of this beautiful species. One bird came from Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust and lives with another species (e.g. Yellow-breasted fruit dove) in on-show enclosure inside Bird House (Ptaszarnia).
      It was one of my highlights.

      @KevinB Thank you!
      Agree, a species is amazing! Like also other Garrulax-birds :)

      @Neva Me too, the laughingthrushes are some of my favorite songbirds, and sadly many of them are quite too very endangered also, so zoos have an opportunity of making a difference for these species.

      Also, one of my local zoos, Antwerp, has recently acquired two Garrulax species (G. courtoisi and G. bicolor).

      @KevinB Totally agreed. Prague surprised me by an amount of laughingthrushes - and enthuse me with the interest in them. So, zoos can do a lot :).
      And also it's great to hear that another zoo joined the programme about this critically endangered birds!
      I saw that Hodonin and Goerlitz have some nice species also.

      @Terry Thomas thank you for all your comments :) It's really nice to see that you like these shots!
