The North Carolina Zoo is temporarily suspending operations
effective March 17 until further notice. More information.
Working together with the Design team led to the creation of several shallow areas with soft ground in the pool. These spaces provide the ducks a place to preen and roost. Moving the cedar branches in the pool changes their space and creates new perches for the birds.
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.
