Louisville Zoo Opens Steller's Sea-Eagle Aviary

The Louisville Zoo’s new aviary for the Steller’s Sea-Eagles and birds of Far East Russia is a home like no other. Most of us dream of a home with a stream and waterfall, but for the eagles, their new aviary offers both of these luxuries plus other important features tailor-made for these very rare and magnificent raptors. The aviary represents the final phase of the Zoo’s award-winning Glacier Run exhibit. Known to have wingspans of up to eight feet, the spectacular Steller’s Sea-Eagles require a vast amount of space to have privacy at their lofty nest which in turn encourages breeding. The Zoo will work hard to breed these rare eagles. The species is vulnerable to extinction with about 4,000 birds in the wild. Steller’s Sea-Eagles are native to Eastern Russia, so the Zoo’s new aviary was styled after a Russian evergreen forest. Here are some of the things guests will see when they step into the aviary: · A pair of Steller’s Sea-Eagles. The male is named Piotr; the female, the larger of the two, is named Anna. They arrived from the San Diego Zoo in December 2012. · The aviary is more than 50 feet tall and features a stream and waterfall. · An artificial pine tree extends to the top of the exhibit and features a nest 40 feet above ground plus tree limbs that will encourage the eagles to fly from level-to-level. · A nest-cam will allow guests to unobtrusively watch the eagles raise any young that are hatched. · The eagles will have neighbors that are a part of their natural ecosystem including the azure-winged magpie, red-breasted geese and mandarin ducks which will also share the same space. · A thin mesh separates the magpie, geese and ducks from the eagles but allows the birds to see into the eagles’ home. Several small openings in

the mesh divider also allow them to crossover and explore the Sea-Eagles’ habitat. Meet the Neighbors Inhabitants of the same harsh Far East regions as the Steller’s Sea-eagles, the azure-winged magpie, the mandarin duck and red-breasted goose will live in the same aviary. Red-Breasted Goose The red-breasted goose is easily identified by its black head and back flanks of white feathers and bold chestnut-red breast. Recent declines in its population have placed the species on the precautionary endangered species list. Because it’s in danger of extinction, your Zoo will make every effort to breed this species. Azure-Winged Magpie The saying, “birds of a feather flock together,” is certainly true of the azure-winged magpie. These attractive birds are known for roaming, migrating and living in groups. They even take the neighborly approach to helping other magpies raise their young. A female magpie can lay up to nine eggs at once needing a village to help care for that many new fledglings. The magpie is rare in captivity. The Zoo will make every effort to breed the magpie as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums captive management program. Mandarin Duck The drake (male) mandarin duck is striking in appearance and one of the most beautiful ducks in the world. With its glossy green forehead, greenbronze crest feathers, a bronze colored face with white streaks above the eye, a bright red bill and an iridescent maroon colored breast, it is considered a highly ornamental species. Males when not in breeding plumage retain dull grey feathers much like the hens.

Kindergarten Countdown “Kindergarten Countdown” began the first of June and continues until the main event at Slugger Field in August. The program’s goal is to help children be ready to start kindergarten this fall. The four main sponsors, Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville Free Public Library, Metro United Way, and PNC Bank, are joined by a dozen event sponsors in offering free programs for kids all summer long. All the child must do is convince Mom or Dad to take him or her to any branch of the library to sign up. The child gets a free book and an “I’m Going to Kindergarten” t-shirt, which will admit the child and one adult to any and all events at no cost. The events include Friday, June 21 at the Louisville Zoo 10 am – 4 pm, with the PNC Mobile Learning Adventure at the Zoo entrance. Also on the 21st and again on the 28th, Walden Theatre offers a

production of 1001 Nights at 1 pm. On Saturday, June 22, StageOne presents Story Time! at 10 am at the Main Library on York St. The costumed storytellers will also be on hand on July 13 and August 3. The Northeast YMCA is allowing the entire kindergartener’s family free entry to Calypso Cove water park during their Countdown event. On June 20, from 5:30 until 8:00 pm, last names A-L can get wet. Last names M-Z get to splash on June 27. Other participating venues include the Frazier History Museum, Kentucky Derby Museum, Kentucky Science Center, and Slugger Field. For more events and dates checkout the website www.lfpl.org/kindergarten.html. The site also has lists of activities that will help prepare children for school, as well as listing the skills JCPS recommends for children to be ready for kindergarten.

Take A Public Art Walk in Downtown New Albany The 2013 New Albany Public Art Project is being shown off to visitors, local artists, and the public in general on June 22, from 6 – pm. The rotating outdoor artworks are set up annually in downtown New Albany, just across the I-64 Sherman Minton Bridge from Louisville. The Saturday evening program is designed to involve spectators with the artists. A walking tour booklet includes maps of the 2013 and 2012 artworks and information about the artists and themes. The books are available at each installation site and at the Carnegie Center for Art and History, 201 East Spring Street. There are four new pieces installed this year, and five from last year. The four 2013 installations are located in

the Farmer’s Market building, on the wall of Wick’s Pizza, on the lawn at Riverview Towers, and on a building on East Market Street. The temporary installations are selected to illuminate New Albany’s history and heritage as interpreted by the artists. This year’s themes and chosen artists are: Culinary Arts, Michael Wimmer; Museums and Hisotry, Tiffany Carbonneau; Performing Arts and Entertainment, Lee and Betty Benson; and Visual art and Artists, Boris Zakic. During the Art Walk, participants can make their own screenprinted poster designed by Ron Jasin and facilitated by local artists and volunteers. In case of inclement weather, the rain date is June 29.
