very large selection of birds and you can walk right in the area they fly in. They swoop down past you, may even land on you. Pretty cool. Lots of beautiful birds including Eagles(my favorite)

A beautiful aviary with opportunities to participate in feedings for a nominal fee. Clean, family friendly and a comprehensive collection of birds from all over the world.

We decided to go here on a whim while we were waiting to go the the pirates baseball game. It was not disappointing! The selection of birds and how knowledgeable the staff were about the birds was impressive. We really enjoyed!

I visited the aviary this summer with my brother. We both booked a sloth encounter and it was definitely the experience of a lifetime we hoped for. We loved being able to pet and feed the sloth. You can also take as many photographs as...More
