Visitors will experience up-close and personal the majestic and colorful lories, or lorikeets, in our new, year-round, walk-through aviary. Often referred to as the clowns of the parrot world, lories are playful, colorful parrots from Australia. Not only are these birds charismatic, but they are very unique in that they eat nectar. Their specialized tongues look like a bottle-brush and they use them to scoop out nectar from flowers. Visitors will experience this sensation as the lories will fly, or jump down, landing on hands, heads or whatever else they feel is a good perch and eat the nectar directly from the guest’s cup.

Admission to the Parrot Playhouse is FREE with Park admission… and FREE for members!
