Zebra finch aviary, 2020-09-20

Formerly home to red-throated parrot finches. At the time of my most recent visit the signage had not yet been updated.

      Feels like a waste of space :(

      @nczoofan Not really in my opinion. Yes, zebra finches may be common and partially domesticated, but this aviary is right near the entrance areas of the building so sensitive species probably wouldn't be a good fit here, and it is isn't really accommodated for species that need more places to hide. It also couldn't really ethically house anything other than passerines or other small birds, as it isn't a large aviary at all (and as such doesn't take up that much space in the bird house).

      That said, I wouldn't mind if they mixed in or replaced with a different species.
    There are no comments to display.
