Birds & Habitats
Birds & Habitats
The National Aviary is home to more than 500 birds and mammals representing species from around the world. Explore walk-through habitats where birds fly freely around you, and a sloth can be spotted in the trees. Get up close to a colony of adorable penguins, see mysterious owls, and be amazed the impressive 10-foot wingspan of the Andean Condors.
As you spend time in each habitat, you’ll notice birds nesting, preening, singing, swimming, and interacting as they would in the wild. Watch our vibrant flamingos and parrots socializing, and meet rehabilitated eagles and pelicans who found a comfortable home that meets their every need at the National Aviary. Take time to discover more elusive species – some are endangered or event extinct in the wild, and learn about the National Aviary’s role in saving birds and protecting their habitats.
