New feathers on the block

Posted by: Rebecca Whitham, Communications


Meet the new feathers on the block: the newest group of birds that now call Woodland Park Zoo home.

Lola is a 3-year-old, female Aplomado falcon. She is currently at the Raptor Center being trained by her keepers to become part of the free-flight raptor program and will make her debut in the show this December.

Olga, a female Steller’s sea eagle, is now on view at Northern Trail where she lives with the zoo’s male Steller’s sea eagle.
 
This male falcated duck can be found in the Temperate Forest marsh.
 
A male and two female fulvous whistling ducks can be found in the Temperate Forest marsh.

A female brown booby has joined the Humboldt penguin colony. For now, she is outdoors when weather is permitting but she will become more visible as the weather warms.
