The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
Keepers offer a variety of insects and produce in the pool for the ducks. This encourages birds like the teal to increase their activity level and use their sensitive bill to forage and find food as they would in the wild.
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.
