Spring is upon us, and as birdos, we are very excited to see the arrival of the summer migrants to the island. The skies, trees, and ground are starting to fill with species of tern, shearwater, and tropic bird, to name a few, that come here each year to nest. We are hopeful that we will be able to see some hatchlings before our time here is done!
Whether they have wings, fluffy tails or long tails, a great way in training your little one is to make special healthy treats and activities they will love you for. Our Carnivore Keeper Deb has come up with a range of activities and treats for your pet birds, rats, mice and rabbits. Read more about keeping your pets entertained here.
Police are investigating the theft of two Macaws from Sydney’s Taronga Zoo.
Keepers packed up early Friday morning and made the journey home from Chiltern.
Volunteers and keepers spent yesterday afternoon and today tracking the 43 Regents that we have sent out into the wild.
Monday's Qantas flight to Albury carrying the second group of 21 Regents was delayed due to thick fog, with the temperature plunging down to 1.5C!! Glad I was there last week!!
We arrived in Chiltern late yesterday and have spent today setting up the temporary housing for the Regents. This involved putting up the tents, putting tarps over the tents and constructing branches for perching inside the tents. It is essential that everything is securely in place, as we have heard we might have gale force winds coming our way!!
The Zoo is test fitting tiny radio trackers to 50 rare Regent Honeyeaters before they are released into the wild next month.
Orphaned animals are regularly brought to Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s Wildlife Hospital however; it is not very often that they are a baby Dusty Moorhen. This young Dusty Moorhen was brought to the Zoo by a member of the public after being found on its own at the Narromine weir.
