The Conservatorium High School paid us a visit today. They came behind the scenes after spending the night at the zoo. After they saw some mammals like quokkas and koalas it was time for the birds!
They were a great group. Very enthusiastic for so early in the morning … 8AM. All bright eyed we talked about the show and our birds. We brought them out our Rufous Owl ‘Angus’ and beautiful Wedge-Tail Eagle ‘Nonami’.
Much fun was had. We talked about the ways we can help birds, little things like turning off your television when you’re not watching it. And to wrap it up, myself and one brave volunteer swallowed a mealworm each. Tastes like chicken.
