Grasslands

The Grasslands is temporarily closed while we renovate the habitat. Check back soon for updates.


The National Aviary's Grasslands exhibit allows guests to enter a natural world inhabited by finches, doves, plover, and other species native to grassland areas around the world.

Inhabiting the Grasslands exhibit are an array of delicate and colorful birds, including Gouldian Finches, Paradise Whydah, Sudan Golden Sparrows, Shaft-tail finches, and Melba Finches. The exhibit’s plantscape comprises sea oats, bayberry, birch and dogwood as well as other greenery.
