LOVE HORNBILLS DAY 2023
We 💛 hornbills!
Meet some of the hornbills who call the Phoenix Zoo home!
11-year-old Diego and five-year-old Minnie have taken their place in the rhinoceros hornbill habitat on the Children’s Trail. They are a freshly introduced breeding pair and are along great!
24-year-old Sylvester’s new mate 21-year-old Barbara Grace arrived recently arrived from Santa Barbara. Once Barbara Grace is out of the quarantine period, she and Sylvester will be introduced off exhibit. After the two to three week introduction period is over, they will be on display at Tropical Flights!
While we’re excited to welcome some new hornbill faces to the Phoenix Zoo, we’re sad to see others leave.
One-and-a-half-year-old wrinkled hornbill Tubac will be moving to Moody Gardens this spring. And, rhinoceros hornbills Nash and Phoenix will be leaving
on breeding recommendations.
