Aussie Aviary


This exhibit is currently closed for the season. Please flutter by 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.

Hours:

  • During April school vacation week, April 20-24, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (weather-dependent)
  • After April school vacation week, weekends only, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
  • Regular hours begin Memorial Day weekend, 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. weekdays, and 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. weekends and holidays
