Koyuki the Snowy Owl is back to the flight show of owls. This heat-intolerant bird has been off for long summer vacation, but recent cool weather enabled it to come back to the show.
因为天气热休息了好长一段时间的雪鸮小雪又重新回到了飞行表演场。
흰부엉이 코유키가 다시 비행쇼에 컴백하였습니다.더위에 약해 이 여름방학동안 쭉 쉬였는데 날씨가 다시 서늘해져 돌아오게 되였습니다.

Koyuki shows nice flight, surprising the audience with its brilliant white body.
尽管休息了那么长一段时间,小雪仍没有辜负大家的期望,看来在休息时偷偷给自己充电了呢。
오래 쉬였음에도 불구하고 멋있게 날아 관객들을 놀라게 하였습니다.

Koyuki seems to be heavier than before due to the long off. But it'll turn slim through flights in the daily show.
小雪的体重似乎长了一些,相信在训练一段时间后小雪的体重马上就会恢复到以前的状态。
쉬는동안 체중이 조금 불은것 같습니다.하지만 이제 훈련하면서 천천히 돌아오리라 믿습니다.

What Do Hornbills Eat? 

This time we focus on food of birds. We'd like to show you what the birds in Matsue Vogel Park eat. Let's start with hornbills.

The Park keeps following 7 kinds of hornbills;

Oriental Pied Hornbill

Silvery-Cheeked Hornbill

Von der Decken's Hornbill

African Grey Hornbill

Piping Hornbill

Mindanao Wrinkled Hornbill

Since most of them are from tropical region, it is quite natural that they eat tropical fruit well. In the Park we feed them on apple, banana, melon, papaya, tomato(in summer), persimmon(in winter) and meat in the morning, and pellets in the afternoon. I didn't know that they eat meat as well.

If you visit the Park in the early hours, you might be able to see the hornbills at their meal.

Debut of a New Falconer 

A new falconer made her debut on daily Falconry Show.

In this picture, the new falconer Miss Taoda handles the falcon cleverly. Originally in charge of the Flight Show of owls, she learned how to let the falcon catch the lure as is instructed, and debuted here.
According to her, unlike owls that fly toward her hand, it was very difficult to hit it off with the falcon by operating the lure.

She handled the falcon skillfully with the lure in her hand.

She showed a smile during the show. She was scarcely upset.

She was in good harmony with the falcon, that catched the lure high above the sky.
Her first was a great success, and the audience gave her a big hand.

Please don't miss her on the Falconry Show during your visit.

White Indian Peafowl 

Recently, you can hear something mewing from a bird cage by the moving pavement.

As I hid to see what the source of the mew was, it turned out to be a male White Indian Peafowl. Perhaps he's appealing to female peafowls at their mating season.
I've been trying to record the mew, but he always stops mewing immediately when he senses human. Only some video clips with his display were available to me.

Some time ago, when I was informed of a bird staff member that it was the good chance to take the display of the peafowl, he has already folded his tail when I arrived in front of him with a camera.
But this time, he was aware of me but he kept displaying to a female. He attracted many visitors but no female at all.


A video clip from front. Can you hear a rustle? This sound is produced by trembling his tails. Display does not consist of spreading alone, I see.


This poor Peafowl has been ignored by female all the time. On the other hand, a pair of Grey Crowned Cranes seemed to be immersed in love.


Display of White Indian Peafowl seems to display more often in the morning, so if you want to see the display, it is recommended to visit the Park in the morning.

Great Blue Turaco During Its Meal 

From today on, Matsue Vogel Park Kachoen runs an English version of its official weblog.

The first subject of this weblog is a Great Blue Turaco that the Park keeps.
This species is the largest among turacos, and it's not good at jumping from branch to branch or soaring.

This turaco spends most of the time on a perch that is fixed at the higher part of the cage. This video clip is one we took when the bird came down for food.

It looked around restlessly, unusual for this species, so I stood by with the video camera with a hope that it might fly toward the tree next to me. And.....Bingo! It was my first experience to see this species that close to me, I was very impressed.

Great Blue Turaco(Corythaeola cristata) ranges among tropical forests in middle West Africa.


It was eating food just beyond a glass window.
I made a small discovery out of this video clip. When the bird thrusts its head into the food box, its crest is somewhat folded so that it might not touch the box. Looks like it's some thing more than an ornament.....


After it finished eating food, it went back to the perch and started polishing its bill. The bird next to the Great Blue Turaco is a Violet Turaco that is kept together with.

Great Blue Turaco is very rare bird, and very few Japanese facilities keep and exhibit it. Please don't miss it during your visit.
