Hey there! Thanks for dropping by Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo! Take a look around and grab the RSS feed to stay updated. See you around!
Yes, you can find many a fine feathered friend at the Henry Doory Zoo.
Even Sparrows like attention!
But other more exotic birds await!
A net is normally thought of in terms of catching fish. In this case, a net forms an overhead encloser to keep a multitude of exotic birds contained within the Zoos’ outdoor Aviary. Large as a football field and taller than mature trees, the Aviary lets you roam on boardwalks suppended above the ground for a “Birds Eye” view. Do keep an eye out, as birds either roosting or flying overhead may drop you a surprise.
Did someone say “Birds”? « Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo
“birds birds birds”
With cold weather just around the corner, it’s time to move all our feathered friends back into their winter abodes. Where exactly they store all of the birds is somewhat of a hidden mistery. Rumor has it, there are hidden underground tunnels and rooms weaving a network of passages through out the zoo grounds. Could it be that Henry Doorly has borrowed some plans from Disney World? Should I ever get a behind the seens tour, I will let you know.
I’m sure that we will be making a tour of the zoo sometime in the next month or two. A little snow will show us who are the real year-round animals of the zoo!
My favorite bird experience at a zoo was in San Diego where they had lorikeats that you could feed. They ate/drank little cups of koolaid -like nectar. If you held the cup in your hand about five of the birds would land on your arm and start drinking.
