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. And feeding the animals here in the Aviary is encouraged!  If you’re lucky, the birds will land on your seed stick and enjoy a little nibble.

Capacity within Aussie Aviary is limited.
