Costa de la Colwyn Bay Zoo

Following on from Steve's dodgy bird thread, here are some bizarre Mediterranean additions to the Colwyn Bay Zoo aviary over winter - this poor Hoopoe looked out of place in the cold winter weather, while I'm not sure whether the Cattle Egret was a food source in the Andean Condor pen or not! Looks like we might have to be suspicious of more than just ducks over the coming months ;-)


  1. You've gotta feel sorry for that hoopoe! Just out of interest Marc did any of these have (plastic) rings on them? Cheers Julian

  2. That looks like an African Hoopoe to me.

  3. Looking forward to a mass break out in Spring, maybe we can give them a hand?!
