there is a party of school children to look at

o.k. in preparation for a silly sunday

The wingspan of these birds is over 10 feet.
Pretty impressive to see but to me all the better if in the wild.
These birds look happy enough and are fed every day so I wonder what they prefer.

Again taken through wire mesh.

A wingspan of 10 feet, that's massive, if I had to guess he would prefer soaring through the skies...well captured Barbara

I guess if they've never known proper freedom they are content - or do their genes tell them they should be flying high and free!!!

I agree. Especially for animals who need lots of room and movement. 10 feet! He's carrion some serious wings, Barbs.

He seems to make a really good tour guide, though.

Very well shot, this, and what a great title Grin

I know some of them need to be protected but I would love to see them in much larger enclosures. We cannot always travel to their natural habit eitherSad Great capture of the huge wingspan.
