Stuart, I saw the show earlier in the year and it is thoroughly enjoyable.
I think the Black Breasted Buzzzard is a female called "Slammer". If I
remember correctly, her keeper said that she was a captive bred bird and
wasn't taught to break the "egg" but that she  learned by instinct. 

The show really is worthwhile - all the birds are free flying. The line up
when I saw it consisted of Sea Eagle, Black kite, Barking Owl, 2 Major
Mitchell's, Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo and a cheeky Galah.
