    Are there any zoos with New Caledonian Crows? I know a few research facilities in Europe have them, but the're not open to the public. Zootierliste came up with no current holding, so I assume there are no public collections holding them in Europe.

    As you will have seen on Zootierliste they were held at Cotswold for a while, several years ago. I think they were a pair and they were on loan from the Edward Grey Institute for Ornithology at Oxford, which had (has?) a colony for behavioural research. I found them to be very shy and so they did not make a particularly good exhibit.

    Looks as though it might have bashed its head on the aviary roof.
