Tracy Aviary has a wide range of birds of all sizes and from numerous locales around the world. The bird show was a lot of fun, you got to see them close up, such as a macaw, hawk, vulture, and roadrunner. The place is clean and well-kept, with some indoor exhibits as well as outdoor.

We had a great time at this aviary. What a well planned and enjoyable place. The staff was very willing to share info about the facility and animals. The birds seem well cared for and happy. They have discount days. Look at their website. Don't miss the little stuffed birds with their real life bird calls in the store. Two... More

Have been in the same aviary in the 90's, return now and was impressed how well it expanded, new pavilions, very nice variety of birds. Love them all, most impressed with owls that are so difficult to see in the wild.

I have enjoyed every visit to Tracy Aviary - But last August was the best! As I walked back to the Gift Shop, two of the condor handlers were walking in the same direction with their best avian buddy. I was privileged to walk with them and watch TA's magnificent condor trot along side - A moment I will never... More

The aviary is very clean, and the animals appear to be well taken care of. I was happy to see the variety of birds, and that they had clean areas and water. The eagles are beautiful and regal!

I visit the aviary almost weekly. They have beautiful grounds. Interesting exhibits and birds. Most of all they have a great staff. I've had great experiences asking some of the employees questions about the birds and have always left feeling more knowledgeable.

The aviary is clean and well kept and entertains people of all ages. They do some great bird shows and have really good and interesting exhibits featuring birds from around the world. They are a great shelter for injured birds as well. It is small and can be visited in a couple of hours.

SO the remodel part could be old but I had not been there for a really long time. The remodel that has been completed looks amazing. There are different well groomed pathways and exhibits. They really put some thought into the exhibit surroundings and feel. Really nice and leisurely to walk through.

We visit the aviary at least twice a year and it never gets old. The bird show is great, there are lots of varieties to see and they just keep improving. The extra activities to feed different birds are fun for the kids and not to spendy. There are a few small carnival rides outside the Aviary for cheap ticket... More

From owls to flamingos, this 2-3 hour diversion from the hustle and bustle of SLC is a perfect getaway still in the center of the city. Both indoor and outdoor exhibits display the birds eating or roosting -- accompanied by bird song of course. Worth the small admission fee which supports their conservation efforts.
