Gorillas installation. Mallard duck. Part Six (part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4, part 5). 
SEVEN days after hatching. High alert!, I find the two chicks alone on the prairie, and when they see me, they flee to hide. Where’s mama duck? Is she looking for food?
Instalación de gorilas. Ánade real. Sexta parte (1ª parte, 2ª parte, 3ª parte, 4ª parte, 5ª parte)
SIETE días después del alumbramiento. Alerta máxima, me encuentro a los dos pollitos solos en la pradera, en cuanto me ven, huyen para esconderse ¿donde esta mama pato? ¿habrá ido a buscar comida?

#TracyAviary is one of only 5 zoos in the world that house Andean Tinamou.  If you can #believe it, these small birds, less than a foot tall, are related to the world’s largest living bird species, the #ostrich!

As the name suggests, Andean tinamou can be found in the Andes region of #SouthAmerica…  And right here at Tracy Aviary!

The dapper and stunning puna teal is a resident duck of the Andes, like the Andean tinamou we shared two days ago.  Our puna teal lives on the flamingo pond and can regularly be seen acting like the toughest duck on the pond, chasing off any wild ducks that fly in for some free food.  Tracy Aviary is lucky enough to be one of only 8 zoos in the entire U.S. to house puna teal!

Look at all those spotty feathers! Our two helmeted guineafowl, former residents of the Rare Bird Exhibits, now roam #TracyAviary’s grounds with the peafowl. These two can usually be seen around the Rare Birds area. If you’re lucky, one might even take a stroll down the boardwalk next to you!

We love to give our guests opportunities to #GetClose with our birds, but remember: Don’t touch! The birds are more comfortable with you, and will get close with you, if we all continue to respect their personal space just like if they were another human. 

Do you have any photos of our roaming guineas? We want to see ‘em! #Facebook, #Instagram, #Twitter, or #Flickr, send them over and we’ll share them all! (at Tracy Aviary)

Our macaws go through a lot of wooden toys.  Our staff and some volunteers make these “parrot block” strings almost daily because our parrots rip through them at lightning speed!  This keeps their mental energy up, helps to file down their beaks and nails, and lets our captive-born birds do some of the same behaviors they’d be doing in the wild.  Giving animals items like this is just one of the many forms of “enrichment” that we provide to our birds every day.  Let’s hear it for happy, healthy birds!
