Bird Boom: Tweeting the Old Fashioned Way

In partnership with:
Date and time
Thursday, August 13, 2009

Zoo Atlanta Curator of Birds James Balance discusses the zoo's avian baby boom during a 2009 Discovery Talk. Tweeting of the old-fashioned kind, not the new media sort, is big at Zoo Atlanta, where four bird species have become parents in August. The new chicks in town are two kori bustards, at least seven Chilean flamingos, two Gambel's quail and one Palawan peacock pheasant.

James Ballance formerly worked at the Baltimore Zoo, in a similar capacity.
