Take Flight: A Bird Habitat Tour

June 18, 2022 at 10:30 a.M. (1 Hour)

Take Flight: A Bird Habitat Tour is debuting as a brand-new experience for members in June! During this adventure, you’ll join a docent for egg-cellent discoveries about the Zoo’s feathered friends. Who is sitting on eggs? What type of birds drink by using their beak like a straw? Whose talons are as long as a grizzly bear’s claws? What type of birds are almost always left-footed? What are some of the craziest ways birds minimize mass to make flight possible? Come find out on June 18! And, while you’re at the Zoo, wish our Andean condor celebrity, Leadbottom, a happy 39th birthday!
