cinnamonhellen Found a lost cockatiel yesterday in a park off the lakeshore yesterday evening. Transported her home from downtown to Mississauga today. She's eating and recovering. Hopefully she will go back to her owners! #lostcockatiel #cockatiel #parrot #cutie #bird #toronto #lesliespit #tommythompson #park #nomnomnom 2w

Tomorrow, we head into the remoteness on these helicopters for 2 weeks - studying migrating shorebirds.

cinnamonhellen Carolina Parakeet from a few months ago came back from the taxidermist! Now beautifully mounted and very life-like! The only native species of parrot to the USA, now extinct. #workflow #romtoronto #museumlife #ornithology #carolinaparakeet #parrot #northamerican #usa #extinct #taxidermy #birds #carolina #parakeet #naturalhistory #specimen 2mon

cinnamonhellen New Green Moray eel in the Grouper tank! #ripleys #aquarium. These guys are super amazing at hiding in the big shark tank, now you can get a closer look! They are sedentary hunters, waiting for prey to pass by. Mistaken for appearing vicious, they open and close their mouths to suck in oxygen from the water that passes through their gills - much like some sharks. Largest Green Moray was 8 feet long and weighed 65lbs! #marinelife #ocean #sea #coral #coralreef #greenmoray #moray #eel #toronto #predator #notsodangerous 3mon

cinnamonhellen Alright take 2 this is a two-headed Brown-headed Cowbird made from TWO individual cowbird species as a "joke" by one of our technicians! This specimen is NOT natural, had a hard time figuring it out because the associated label went missing! Nonetheless, Cowbirds are the most common "brood parasite" species in North America. Females lay eggs in over 220 host bird species! Their eggs will hatch sooner giving their young an advantage when in the nest of other birds. However, birds like the Yellow Warbler have learned to recognize Cowbird eggs, and will build a new nest over the parasite egg. Oldest recorded individual of this species was 16 years and 10 months old! #cowbird #notreal #looksveryreal #twobirds #notnatural #joke #museumfun #museumlife #workflow #notags #notafreakofnature #brownheaded #northamerica #america #canada #birds #ornithology #romtoronto #naturalhistory #wehavefuntoo #taxidermy #weird 3mon

cinnamonhellen This is the majestic look of freedom! They look funny when photographed from the front! in 1782, the Bald Eagle became the national bird in the USA, and was adopted onto the Great Seal of the United States. The Turkey was the other contender - and equally majestic in my opinion to be a national bird. #looksfunnyfrthefront #freedom #murica #america #usa #unitedstates #baldeagle #eagle #notreallyfree #taxidermy #collection #specimen #research #museum #workflow #naturalhistory #ornithology #majestic #turkey #nationalbird 3mon
