I'd agree with Liam and Carolina. Zoos do a pretty good job at labeling mammals, even in mixed exhibits, but that isn't the case with birds and fish. As a result, it is sometimes difficult to identify birds in zoos since their labels might be missing and often the bird is not a local variety. (To be sure, some zoos are much better than others at labeling.) We try to help and hope that you find our suggestions helpful.
That's okay Colleen, just as Liam told you, some zoos have multiple species in a single exhibit, and sometimes they don't label all :)
This is what a roadrunner looks like: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/713...
They often have multiple birds in a single exhibit, and they don't label some birds sometimes.
That's what the zoo label said
Ocellated Turkey is correct.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocellated_T...
I'd suggest that this is an Ocellated Turkey (Meleagris ocellata). See http://eol.org/data_objects/15278186 for more information. I'd enjoy hearing whether you agree.
Maybe it is Willie E. Coyote disguised as a road-runner? He always messed up... :-)
It also looks like a turkey to me.And si Ceci, existen zoológicos que tienen correcaminos en su colección, pero este no es el caso.
Sure looks like a turkey. Definately not a road runner.
