Palawan hornbill

Palawan hornbill

New resident!

Hello, We have more good news for you!

When three months ago our  female Palawan hornbill "disappeared" in the aviary, the bird keepers began to suspect that she had laid eggs. Since then nobody has approached the birds, except of three keepers, well known to the expecting couple. Now the suspicions have been confirmed because the fledgling  has left the nest. This is a first documented hatching of this species in conservation breeding. The Palawan hornbill is threatened with  extinction and can only be admired in  three zoos in the world.

We estimate the chick hatched around 20th of April. It unsealed and left the nest only last week.

We don’t know its gender yet.
