As a rule, I no longer post images of captive animals, but I had to make an exception here. The Aviary at La Paz is quite large, with a wide variety of species free to come and go at will, perching in trees and other natural structures. The birds are excellent specimens, and appear to be in very good health. We have seen these in the wild, but they are typically quite far away, in the tree-tops, etc., making photo opportunities extremely limited.
