Theropod Thursday 48: OUCH!

Dieser Beitrag auf Deutsch.

I recently went to Bird World in Surrey (wikipedia). A great visit, and I will be posting a lot of the photos in future posts. For now, I will focus on three inhabitants with a big OUCH.

Temminck’s Tragopan (Tragopan temminckii). Below is another one with a healthy beak. Quite a difference!

Another messed up bill:

Male Black Hornbill (Anthracoceros malayanus). At least the top of the bill is OK all the way along the margin, so feeding should not be hindered too much.

So what happened to these beaks? Stuck in a wiremesh fence? Maybe. The next ouch is easy to understand:

ouch_03

Someone is picking on this Turtle Dove (Streptopelia turtur) a lot!

    Marc and I tried to take pictures of both the hornbill and the tragopan too (he the former, I the latter). I must have missed the turtle dove though. Poor things. But they still seemed happy and healthy otherwise. The tragopan was scoffing down food with brio when I tried to photograph it.
