The Bird Habitat is closed. Stay tuned for something new coming soon!
Many species of Parrots that can be found in the pet industry are endangered in the wild, including sun conures and golden-capped conures, two species present in the Bird exhibit.
Many Parrots don’t build nests like many other birds. Instead, they lay their eggs in downed logs, holes in trees, or in the fronds of palm trees.
Some parrots, including the Quaker Parrot, have managed to establish populations in the United States. While interesting, they are very aggressive and invasive and outcompete local birds for food and territory .
