It’s not uncommon for people to feel nervous around birds. After all, they can fly and make sudden movements, and there are many varied species, some of which are elusive or even unusual. Birds can also bring so much joy to our lives. Their songs, their beauty, and their critically important role in our shared ecosystem are all wonderful reasons to learn to appreciate and enjoy birds. Join the National Aviary to learn about birds and what makes them so special with this exciting program. A bird expert will share information, answer questions, and introduce the audience to a small bird in a comfortable environment. Participants will then have the opportunity to spend the day at the Aviary, exploring immersive habitats and meeting beautiful birds.
