Come to the National Aviary an hour before opening and get exclusive access to our birds at a time of day when they are especially active, and when some of the shyer species are more viewable. Our trainers will use their expertise to coax some seldom-seen birds out from their hiding places to provide photographers with the best possible views. Space is limited. Advanced reservations required at least 1 day in advance. Programs begin at 9:00 am.

$20/members $25/nonmembers (per program includes admission that day)

For more information or to register for any of our programs, please contact the National Aviary Reservationist at 412-258-9439 or via email at
