The National Aviary is a wonderful place for families. I thought that the aviary would be bigger than it actually is, but what they lack in size is made up for in variety. There are so many birds, including eagles, parrots, and turkeys, to delight everyone.
You must, however, be on the watch in the free flying rooms for mischevious birds. Look out in the tropical room for three birds that like to sit on top of the information poles and have target practice on anyone that is careless enough to actually want to read about the birds in the room. I was fortunate enough to have narrowly missed the dropping, but had to listen to those birds laugh at me.
One of the best things about the National Aviary is their special events that they hold each day. The one I got to see was the Penguin Premier in which they brought out a live African Penguin. All the children were thrilled beyond belief. Over all the Aviary was an excellent place to spend the afternoon.
