    Hamilton's bittern died over the winter.

    oh, that's sad. They were supposed to have had two, but there's never much information about their birds.

    That is sad about the Bittern. They did have two, but I'm not sure what the current status is. I was in Hamilton for the last three weeks, but unable to visit the zoo sadly.

    I don't think Nga Manu had any little owls when I visited in January.

    They did when I visited a week and a half ago, but labeled them "German owls".
