Bird's World Exhibit
Bird’s World is housed in one of the original buildings from Franklin Park Zoo's 1913 opening, giving it the majesty and charm of a bygone era. This stunning structure is home to dozens of species of birds from around the globe, including tawny frogmouths, sunbitterns, Gouldian finches, and other indigenous birds from swamplands, scrublands and wetlands. With so many different species hooting, cooing and whistling, Bird’s World is a wonderfully noisy exhibit!
