Tree Sparrow is still around the zoo and can be found near the Food Plaza
behind the seals. There are usually good numbers behind the elephant house
too, even though the more common House Sparrow dominates.
Song Thrush can be found around the rainforesty areas along the primate
(gibbons, capuchins...) enclosures.
On a more native note - there are Red-rumped Parrots breeding in one of the
dead trees in the male elephant's enclosure. Nankeen Night Herons can be
readily seen opposite the Orangutan exhibit.
