Adorable arrivals for our aviary

These pictures of our latest arrivals may well break the internet!

They should at least carry a serious cuteness alert. You have been warned! 🚨

You can see the masked lapwing chicks in our aviary in between our new Hungry Farmer restaurant and our Tropical Trails exhibit.

Every tale has a beginning and ours begins with these very pretty eggs!

Mama lapwing took good care of her eggs

And was rewarded with these beauties!

And now the fun begins…

“Yes, I am adorable”…the end!

📷 Our talented zoo keeper Sarah Blake took these fantastic photos.
