Rare Jewels of the Rainforests

July 17 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm CDT

Free

The “first city of Kansas” Leavenworth, rich in history, has a wonderful public library that is hosting our endangered species program on July 17th, at 2:00 o’clock. This has our best birds in it – including a hyacinth macaw (the largest of all parrot species), an Eurasian eagle-owl (the largest type of owl in the world), and a toco toucan (you guessed it – the largest specie of toucan) and several other rare parrots.

Did you know that the hyacinth macaw’s cobalt-blue feathers turn an emerald green when wet? That is because they really aren’t blue! Whaaaat? Come to the program to find out more. Why does a toucan have such a long beak? Can an owl turn it’s head all the way around? Can birds really talk or sing? Come to the Leavenworth Public Library to learn more. It’s FREE.

Rare Jewels of the Rainforests includes these birds:

Hyacinth macaw, either a blue-throated macaw OR a shamrock macaw, a Moluccan cockatoo (or other specie of endangered cockatoo), parrotlet or dove, Amazon parrot(s), one of the medium-sized parrots (ex: African grey, rose-breasted cockatoo, etc.), and of course the largest type of owl in the world, the Eurasian eagle-owl.
