:wow: That is a beautiful pic. If she's the same one they had there about two-three years ago, I've seen her in action on demonstration, chasing a rubber snake on a string. Amazing birds, and very elegant.

She's the only one there and I get the impression she's been there a while. Not used for display any of the times I've been there though.

When I saw it, it was about three years ago. They had her/one in the display area, and threw a rubber snake out on a string, and she/it did the kicking/stamping attack. Rather interesting. Beautiful bird!

Very neat! For some reason, I find odd to see a bird with eyelashes; it sounds like dinosaurs also had those, not only mammals, hahaha!
