    Can anybody confirm or deny, that Budapest zoo had Greater Birds of Paradise (Paradisea apoda) in its waterbird house sometime in 1970's-80's?

    I seem to recall (long ago) seeing them there. Or I mixed them with some other species?

    It's sure that about 1970's-80's there were Red Birds of Paradise (Paradisea rubra) in Budapest Zoo. But I don't know there was holded any species or not.
    And it's sure now any species of Birds of Paredise don't be holding in Budapest Zoo.
