Had some captive individuals and succeeded in hatching and raising a few poults. The bird doesn't do well in captivity. The last SPPA report I have is from 1998 and there were no breeders listed at that time. The San Antonio Zoo had a few individuals at one time, but not having been there in four years, I couldn't vouch for current status of this species in their collection. Nancy Mulligan may still be connected to the SPPA folks and have a more current report.

I just found out that when I reply to a posting using the link provided by these forums that it lists my return address as some MSN account that I don't even know how to get into. (I have tried!)
Needless to say, I won't get any messages that are sent to me there.
I wonder how many people I have unknowingly ignored ..... ?
