Blue-crowned Laughingthrush

It’s a birdwatcher’s delight at the Zoo's Audubon Aviary where all of the species in this exhibit are targeted by cooperative conservation initiatives among members of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA). The Aviary is also home to a family group of critically endangered Blue-crowned Laughingthrush birds that have successfully hatched and reared their chicks! Audubon Zoo is one of the few zoos in North America currently raising this rare species.
