Busch Gardens Tampa – Bird Gardens: Aviary


Rating: * * * 1/2
Type: Walk-through animal exhibit
Time: Continuous viewing
Short Tale: A lovely place to pause

This is a smallish habitat compared to others in the park, but its size belies its enchantment. Essentially a large tent made of a dark mesh fabric, the aviary lets you visit a wide variety of tropical birds in a remarkably realistic setting, instead of peering at them through the bars of a cage. Benches allow for long and leisurely viewing. Some, like the roseate spoonbill, may look familiar but others, like the odd Abdim’s Stork and a beautiful blue Victoria Crowned Pigeon that thinks it’s a peacock, will probably be new to you.

I have discovered that the longer you sit and relax here, the more the mesh tent fades from your consciousness. What remains is a charming encounter with some very lovely birds.
