The white-cheeked turaco was never interested in anything I tried to feed it.\n\nThis is one of the great things about the Discovery Cove aviary. You don't have to pay for a tour to South America or Asia or Africa and hope you get lucky enough to see a bird like this. And this close, too. And you'll get to feed it. Compare the price of Discovery Cove admission to an exotic tour like that and now it appears to get more affordable. More
