Secretary Bird Discussion

Post by Quivira » Wed Sep 21, 2011 1:53 pm

I absolutely love these birds. Their long legs, their quills, their stocky body, and all that just makes them completely awesome.
I also love their South American equivalent, the Seriema, but I'll make a topic for them later on.

Anyways, anyone else like these birds? I got to see a couple really up close at the Tampa Lowry Zoo a few years ago. Pretty awesome experience. I think the zoo gave them away though since there aren't anymore there. Their cage was replaced by a Shoebill exhibit.

Here's some information on them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Secretarybird

OH. OH. I love these birds. <3
They are just so unique- I saw one for the first time last year at the San Diego Zoo. I had a few pictures somewhere, so I'll post them when I find them.
It's one of the few animals that left an impact on me when I went to that zoo. I went back to the hotel and had to research them immediately. xD

I LOVE Secretary Birds. They're just so beautiful and unique <3 I don't remember how I first learned about them, but I've been in love with them for years. I haven't seen one in person though DX

One raindrop among millions.
