    Hi everyone,

    Newbie to zoochat looking for some ID help and advice. The attached images were all taken at the Jungle Jewels aviary in Jurong Bird Park. I'm really struggling with the ID on these (why do they not have a full list of species in the aviaries!!!). If anyone can help to ID these I'd be really grateful.

    Thanks - Darren

    The center picture is a female Yellow hooded blackbird. Both other pictures are female Spangled Cotinga. I believe their name signs only feature the males of these species.

    Perfect- thanks for the reply. Fully agree with the assignments :)

    I'll be posting a new thread for a couple of unknowns from the African Waterfall aviary next.

    Cheers - Darren

    Fully agree with female Spangled cotinga. With the Yellow-hooded blackbird I've no experience but from pictures I've seen I guess also it is one.
