No. No radishes in his nest!!!
I don’t unfortunately, we are a native species zoo so nothing exotic.
I will tell you all about Correy though. He is an asshole that pecks everyone who steps into his enclosure. He even managed to get my relief keeper on the forehead! He will also bully the vultures, a much bigger bird, if they get too close to him. Doesn’t seem to care too much about the tortoises. With me since I am the main person feeding him he doesn’t do that to me anymore and instead tries to seduce me with his dancing and offerings. Lately he has been working on his nest, but he happens to collect the nasty leftovers from the vultures and put it in there so I’m on the lookout daily for bones and jerky in his nest to remove. He is target trained (it took months to get him to do it) and he’s undergoing crate training right now. He makes these “coo coo coo” noises, pterodactyl noises, and “tchtchtchtch grrrrrr” noises. When he’s mad he will make more of a quick clacking noise. He gets hundreds of people going “meep meep” at him every day. He is the only roadrunner at our zoo and I love him.
Roadrunner roadrunner… goin hundred miles per hour
