Dudley Zoo welcomes South American scarlet macaws
Eight vibrant birds have moved into their new £30,000 home at Dudley Zoological Gardens.
The South American scarlet macaws are settling into their luxury lodgings at the zoo after moving from Cornwall three weeks ago.
Their new £30,000 home replaces the 35-year-old group of three parrot aviaries.
Head of birds, Nicola Wright, said the South American scarlet macaws were becoming more confident and enjoying exploring their spacious enclosure.
She added: "After a tentative start the birds are really gaining confidence and have started discovering all the different feeding stations.
"A typical breakfast is a mix of broccoli, carrots, peas, pear and mung beans so they are definitely getting their five-a-day.
"Because they all look so similar we are trying to pick out the nuances between each bird and getting to know their individual personalities."
