Featured Exhibit Areas

Lorikeet Landing

Enjoy a real nose-to-beak experience with lorikeets as you stroll through this beautiful aviary. These brilliantly colored, friendly birds that will eat nectar right out of your hand! Nectar may be purchased at the exhibit for $2 per cup. Note: Lorikeets are on exhibit when the temperature is 55 to 100 degrees.
