Bird of Prey Encounter

The closest you'll ever get to a bird of prey!

Get nose to beak with the Aviary's most fearless residents! Visit with a vulture, falcon or hawk, discovering why these birds are magnificent but extremely misunderstood. See firsthand what birds of prey eat every day, examine feathers and even snap a photo with your new feathery friend.
