When the birds are captured they then need to be well looked after until it is time to move them to their new home.
Some of our birds were caught 3 days prior to leaving.
The birds were housed in temporary aviaries. The photos below show the process of putting them together and fitting them out so that the birds felt at home. Towards the end of the week another aviary was used as well. This aviary was a permanent one that was located in the bust behind the ranger's house.

All complete. Notice the two doors? Only one door is allowed to be open at once. This reduces the chance of birds being able to escape.
