Homey and Pierre Temporarily off Exhibit

Today our blue-banded couple, Homey and Pierre, were temporarily removed from the main colony on exhibit in Africa Hall. They were placed in a holding pen one floor down from, but within auditory range of, the rest of the birds because Homey underwent a minor medical procedure on her left foot. Everything went wonderfully and she’s doing great but her foot needs to be kept in a clean and dry bandage while it heals, which should take about 1-2 weeks. Pierre is keeping her company and the two definitely seem to be enjoying their quiet time together away from all the rambunctious youngsters!
