TUCSON - The Reid Park Zoo has announced the hatching of two baby violet turaco chicks.
Both of the parents took part in incubating the two hatchlings for about 25 days. The chicks were born with black and brown feathers.
This species of bird can be found in Central Africa in a variety of habitats. In the wild, the birds have a crown of red feathers on their head, purple feathers on their body and a bright orange and yellow beak.
Zoo visitors can now see these birds up-close in the Flight Connection walk-through aviary.
