I love these things! I get to interact with a lady ross turaco all the time at work, but these are just awesome!

This is the first time that I've seen this type of bird and it certainly was very forward, not at all shy :)

That's what I like about them so much. The lady ross turaco I work with is the same way, although rather reluctant to perch on people she's not familiar with. I love how agile they are, too.

These birds seem to be the same in nature, this one was running and hopping from branch to branch, with amazing agility, chasing any other bird that dared to use one of its perches. Then when it was content that everyone had been put in their place he would perch close to the public lapping up all the attention :)

Went there a good few years ago. Was a nice place, and a good day out.

Nice pic!

Yes, it's a good day out, I'd forgotten how much walking you end up doing :)

With all those places, it's non-stop walking unless you're sitting to eat, or on rides. :lol:

Absolutely, I only had a very limited time there and it became very evident that I really shouldn't have gone that day. I will be going back again shortly but I will give it the time that it deserves ie the whole day and then home to bed :)
