Wetlands

Wetlands

The Wetlands is an indoor, immersive, walk-through habitat where birds fly freely around you. Home to an energetic flock of American Flamingos and gorgeous Roseate Spoonbills, the Wetlands is vibrant, colorful, and often loud, with birds singing, calling, and vocalizing across the expansive, glass-walled room.

A long boardwalk puts you close to the pools of the Wetlands, where rehabilitated Brown Pelicans perch, Bufflehead ducks swim and dive, and Boat-billed Herons wade.

Watch as beautiful birds like Blue-crowned Motmots and Blue-bellied Rollers land in trees and on perches right beside you! Overhead, you might see critically endangered Bali Mynas or a noisy flock of Hadada Ibises. The Wetlands is also home to a pair of Red-billed Hornbills, the inspiration for the character Zazu in Disney’s The Lion King.
