A must see before summer's end!!
The birds of the National Aviary make their final outdoor flights of the summer on Labor Day. FliteZone, which features an array of birds including macaws, bald eagle, hawks, owls, vultures, parrots, black kites and more, concludes Monday, September 6.
“It’s the last chance for an unforgettable wild encounter with our birds in an outdoor setting,” says Steve Sarro, director of animal programs. “Visitors to our morning show have only a few days left to see birds of prey flying freely, and demonstrating the physical attributes that make them such remarkable hunters. And it’s the final opportunity this year to see flocks of scarlet, green-winged and hyacinth macaws circling and swooping through the trees, right here on the North Side, during our afternoon show.”
All birds in the show have been trained by National Aviary staff using positive reinforcement techniques. The shows are designed to help audiences learn about the conservation challenges facing these birds in the wild, and include opportunities to donate to the conservation of species seen in the show.
After Labor Day, the birds will move inside and begin training for a new show that will be presented in the Helen M. Schmidt FliteZone Theater beginning October 9.
FliteZone show times are Wed-Sat, 11 a.m. (birds of prey) and 2:30 p.m. (parrots and macaws), and Sundays, 2:30 p.m. Two shows have been added for Labor Day, at 11 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
