This place has more birds than you think! I was amazed when I went in. There are play areas for kids as well as interactive activities. I was impressed with their collection of Bald Eagles. They were so majestic, much bigger than expected. I also liked their collection of owls. The big barn owl was huge. There are so many... More

I used to take my children here many years ago. Fortunately it has been beautifully remodeled and is a clean and lovely place to spend time with my grandchildren these days!

The aviary is well laid out and easy to stroll around to the various sections at your leisure. The enclosures give great up close viewing of the birds with good info panels to accompany them. There are feedings and shows as well as being able to feed the ducks which is great for kids. When I was there a keeper... More

The Tracy Aviary is tucked away in Liberty Park (an attraction in and of itself) but is definitely worth the trip. Birds from all over the world are exhibited here, and the Aviary stresses its work with conservation and rehabilitation. There are many cool animal shows to check out, plus feeding opportunities and other ways to interact. My kids love... More

Great place to chill out for an afternoon. The birds are common and exotic and well cared for by the Aviary staff. Good signage and information.

The Tracy Aviary was everything you would expect an aviary to be. Good selection of birds, entertaining bird show. So why only three stars? Access was the worst I have ever seen. The aviary is at the corner of 500 E and 1300 S. So I went there. The only entrance was on 1300 to the right of the aviary.... More

The Tracy Aviary is a top notch facility with an incredible selection of residents. We planned on an hour and stayed for 3. They do a great job pulling you into the environments and the educational aspect of the center. Be sure to catch one of the flight shows. Amazing birds and handlers make for great memories.

Excellent layout and observation areas to learn about and view the birds. From an Andean Condor (Andy) and Eagles, to water fowl and owls, to tiny Amazonian birds - great variety. Very interactive, you learn while experiencing. Great for adults and children. Always enjoy. Good gift shop, too.

The Tracy Aviary is small, but beautifully designed. You meander through paths taking you across a bridge( where we saw oodles of mallard ducklings, geese and other ducks) and through exhibits of bald eagles, golden eagles, hornbills and more. The highlight was getting to see the Andean condor they have. The aviary has shade so you are not out in... More
