Aussie Aviary

This exhibit is currently closed for the season. The budgies will be back in April!

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.
