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.
