Hanging Out with the Birds and Sea Lions at the Seneca Park Zoo | Environment
Did you hear about it? He dropped a bomb live on our morning show. We're talking about Minnow, the talking bird from the Seneca Park Zoo.
"Can you drop the bomb?" asked his trainer Kenny Nelson.
Minnow didn't cooperate until the end of our interview but then made the sound of a bomb dropping. Click here to get the full effect!
The school year is winding down, but that means activities are ramping up at the Seneca Park Zoo.
Minnow is a performer in the Bird Show. Oliver the owl was also on hand this morning -- enjoying some mice! Both will be performing in the Bird Show at the zoo starting Memorial Day weekend.
What else is new at the zoo? There's a new pool for the African black-footed penguins.
"It's state of the art," said penguin trainer Kara Massaschi. "We really took into consideration what penguins would be doing in the wild, what they need in the wild, and we've incorporated it here."
More than 70 chicks have hatched at the Seneca Park Zoo, and these guys range in age from four months to 30 years old!
