The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
In the Aviary, feeding stations the birds routinely use are set up in designated capture areas. This allows the birds to eat there and become comfortable in this area. When a bird needs specialized care, capturing it in this designed space is a smooth process for birds and keepers.
The Aviary design replicates a tropical rain forest. Mimicking their natural habitats has allowed birds to exhibit natural behaviors like courtship, successful breeding, and raising of young. LISTEN for their calls and LOOK for nests and courtship behaviors on your visit to the Aviary.
