Oona is a female Rhinoceros Hornbill at the Virginia Zoo. She is portrayed with her nesting box. Hopefully one day soon she and Riobi will begin to seal her into this box, where she will incubate her eggs and tend the chicks. Riobi will feed her through a small opening they will leave unsealed. Until then she continues to delight visitors with her queenly bearing and steady gaze.
