Now Open at Franklin Park Zoo: Aussie Aviary
This brand new exhibit provides a memorable, interactive experience for Zoo guests, who are able to stroll through the space among hundreds of brightly-colored budgies. Budgerigars, affectionately called budgies, are also known as grass parakeets and are a variety of small slender parrots with long, tapering tails. As part of the experience, guests have the opportunity to purchase seed sticks and feed the birds as they walk through the free-flight exhibit. It's an experience not to be missed!
