I’m almost done with my internship.  I thought I might share some video I’ve taken of our critters here.

First is Beaker: the Abyssinian Ground-Hornbill: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXjdA2Hlo5Y.  They are from the African equator. They are pretty cool because they have eyelashes…made of feathers!  Males have red throat pouches; females have blue.
We feed him each of his pieces separately to 1) train him to go to his stump  and 2) to keep him from trying to feed Gonzo, the vulture next to him. I’m not sure why.

Come back soon for more!
