Aussie Aviary

You won’t believe your eyes in the Aussie Aviary, where hundreds of brightly colored budgerigars, affectionately called budgies, flit and flutter through this free-flight, warm-weather exhibit. In the Aussie Aviary feeding the animals is encouraged! Guests can purchase seed sticks and feed the budgies, a variety of small slender parrots with long tapering tails. If you’re lucky the birds will land on your seed stick and let you keep them company while they enjoy a little nibble.

  • April 17 - 21 (School Vacation Week), 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • April 22 - May 26: weekends only, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
