Tauraco leucotis

Description:

These beautiful birds are flying freely in a tropical green house at my local zoo. They have a really nice space to fly around and visitors can see them perfectly and they are not very shy!

Thanks Brinschk! This is not a official zoo and looks really different then a normal one. But it's really beautiful, really nice place to visit. it's called "Landgoed hoerderdaell". http://www.landgoedhoenderdaell.nl/

If you really like birds there is a bird park close to Rotterdam. it's full of beautiful birds. called "Avifauna" .http://www.avifauna.nl/vogelpark/en/

Very nice bird and picture Bas =). I found the "not very shy" reflection funny as it is a category I would had never used for birds. Greetings =)

It almost looks like he has hair instead of feathers.
