Turquoise tanager

Since few weeks, the birds community is larger. A couple of Turquoise Tanager (tangara mexicana) have breed successfully. The brood of two chicks is now about to be completely fledged. The immatures (yet unknown sex) are extremely mobile and travel extensively, almost everywhere in the Tropical forest of the Biodôme. It is still possible to see the parents feed the young but to do so you’ll have to look very high in the trees… and long enough to give a stiff neck !

Ask one of our staff to help you find them.
