This one is for the birds: the class Aves. Some birds can fly while others cannot; in fact, the largest bird, the Ostrich (of Africa), cannot fly - much like its Australian cousin, the Emu. The largest bird of flight happens to be the Sarus Crane. The Umbrella Cockatoo isn't such a "bird brain" after all - some experts suggest that this bird is the fourth smartest animal on Earth! The zoo has all of these species and so many more! Birds reproduce by laying eggs, from which the chicks hatch. Some species lay numerous eggs but some, like the Caribbean Flamingo, lay just one egg a year. Dwarfing the number of mammal species on Earth, birds could possibly number is excess of 10,000 species - now that is something to squawk about!
- Parrot, Yellow-crowned Amazon
- Pheasant, Bornean-Crested Fireback
