Today we focus on a peculiar friendship between two parrots in the Garden.
One is Achan the Monk Parakeet(gender unknown), the cute one with round eyes.
Another is Lily the Senegal Parrot(male), somewhat fierce look with sharp eyes.
Unique thing about this is that they are close friends despite that they don't belong to the same species. In almost all the cases the birds make friends with others that belong to the same species, and the case with Achan and Monk is very few.
However, visitors pay little attention to them, partly because they are green and not so conspicuous, partly because they are mistaken for a couple of the same species.
Achan and Monk are waiting for visitors at the Parrot Zone in the northernmost part of Eastern Exhibition Hall, so please check them out.
ATTENTION;They can be out of service when they are in bad health.
