My family received free admission to Bird Kingdom to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.
Birds can be such a peaceful and relaxing animal. I had the opportunity recently to visit Bird Kingdom in Niagara Falls, Ontario. In a small unassuming building, right down by the water, is this really neat bird aviary. On the ground floor you will find a restaurant and a gift store and then you go up the stairs into an interesting little museum covering the history of the falls as well as the explorer…..
One of the next rooms has this great collection of reptiles and birds. There were some great snakes (at least that is my oldest daughter, and my husbands opinion) and a neat old turtle that wandered out around on the floor for a while.
How Big is your Wingspan?
The next room was a small open aviary containing a cool mix of small birds. These flitted about freely, darting past your head and sitting on branches only inches from your face, while you wander around the room.
From there it was into the dark to check out the night animals. Some cool owls were in there as well as some bats.
Bird Kingdom has an awesome Tropical Aviary
The last room though was best of all. Up till now we had slowly climbed three stories which covered one half the building. The other half is a single three story room with a winding pathway leading down. This large open tropical aviary is home to some of the coolest and most colourful birds I have seen.
My kids enjoyed their time here, and love that from the moment you exit the car, you can hear the tropical music and birds tweeting in their parking lot. If your in the Niagara Falls area, be sure to pay Bird Kingdom a visit.
