    Probably Behaviour Wise Ben (lol) the Aussie Palm Cocky, Talks to himself allday and is the most gentle bird in the world, Wierdest Collection wise Probably the Nepal Kalij Pheasant, Dunno why i just found them wierd, and they eat so small amounts for a big bird, No photos though, i am the stupid person that forgets their camera, but i had lots of Fun, and have decided now that being a Bird Keeper is what i want to do

    Work Experience

    I did work experience at Adelaide Zoo's Bird Dept as well going back a few years... also did a bird keeping course with Kevin Evans from adelaide zoo...

    That bird dept has certainly changed a fair bit in the last 10 years...
