• Little Penguins are the smallest penguins. I would hope so.
  • Nicobar Pigeons are the closest living relatives to Dodos. I don’t see the resemblance.
  • Greater Flamingos can live for quite a while. The oldest captive bird was at least 83 years old.
  • Golden Conure hatchlings have to be protected from murderous… Toucans?
  • Salmon Crested Cockatoos raise their crests when threatened. Obviously, I’m not very scary.
  • The Victoria Crowned Pigeon is the largest pigeon in the world. For contrast, they can weigh up to 7.5lbs. I normal old city dwelling Rock Pigeon generally weights less than 1lb!

I’m not dead…. just exhausted from grad school and marathon training. All pictures from the Cincinnati Zoo, which I went to over a month ago and holy cow busy life.
