A global community of nature enthusiasts
photographing and learning about wildlife
The London Zoo has spread over a neighbouring channel, creating an area in which a bunch of birds are housed. Some in cages, some in the huge Snowdon Aviary. It houses some cranes, some ducks, green pheasants, buzzards – and Northern Bald Ibises (Geronticus eremita). Ugly-looking birds with a sad history of extinction in Europe.
