Avian Ophthalmology: Nictitating Membrane or not?

Toco Toucan (Ramphastos toco)

Is it the nictitating membrane or just some strange reflection effect from the auto red-eye removal feature of my camera?

Blood Feather

While changing the bath water, I found a blood feather of a Red-shouldered Widowbird
(Euplectes axillaris)
in the dish. Does anyone know more about this species by
personal experience?

I don't know if anyone else has come across this site but it's a large amount of posts of stupid customers. This one is the greatest, some people are so dumb...

Zebra. Nyuh!


Bad smell?!

Hi. I am not trying to be gross or funny here, but I have a yellow collared macaw who just crapped and it smelled like rotten eggs. It looked like normal bird crap. I have 7 birds and have had birds most of my life, and have never noticed an odor in their feces. Has anyone else had this happen?

She's on Zupreem pellets and gets nuts, vegetables, fruit, pasta, and bread throughout the week. She stole a Frito from me last night and I'm wondering if that's what did it. She acts like she feels fine.

 Would anyone like to take over this community?  I know it's not very active, but I'd hate to see it disapear.

Hi from VA!

Hello from Virginia!  My name is Marie and I am an intern at the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center in Virginia.  I am journaling my journey as an intern and everything that goes on with wildlife rehabilitation.  Take a peek, comments and ideas are great!  Especially when we come across something we have questions on.  Having people's feedback would be wonderful. --- marie

Clotting Time in Rates?

Hi everybody,
I am wondering what is the best way to test blood clotting time in laboratory rats (SHR).
Anyone had done it?
Thank you!

Hey all, I've finally broken into the exotic realm of vet tech-ing.

My internship for school is at the Houston Zoo! And on my third day I got to help with radiographs on a Mandrill. Fun stuff.

Someone shot a picture of me in the middle of taking respirations, hence the hand on the Mandrill's back and the vaguely confused expression on my face. (What little of it you can see.)
