Free-Flight Encounters Free with admission
Whether you’re a spring chicken or a wise old owl, Tracy Aviary provides plenty to marvel at during our daily free-flight bird encounters. These experiences are led by Aviary Trainers and feature a rotation of bird species to allow you to discover something new every time you visit. Tracy Aviary offers both scheduled and unscheduled encounters with our avian ambassadors. Our encounters are informal and allow you to get nose-to-beak with our Bird Show avian stars as well as to talk with their trainers.
Encounter Times: Daily 11:30am & 1:30pm.
