    My question is: somebody that visited this park was able to see the rare raptors kept behind the scenes? (Pale chanting goshawk, African pygmy falcon, Chimango and Yellow-headed caracara, Brahminy kite) I asked the park if would be possible according a visit behind the scenes to see these animals, but they replied me that it can't be done for obvious security reasons. But I wonder if somebody was successful in trying to see these rare species :)

    From your list I saw only Yellow-headed Caracara. It was during the morning weighing of birds' weight. The birds were carried out one at a time from the off-show and could be seen for a moment. Unfortunately, I do not know if the remaining species are still in the collection and whether it is possible to see tchem.
