A new attraction is coming to the North Carolina Zoo.
The “Birds in Flight” outdoor experience will feature exotic birds from around the world. The new attraction debuts Friday, March 30, and runs through Oct. 31.
Performances will be held at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. on weekends and holidays and 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on weekdays. The show is $3 per person, in addition to regular zoo admission.
Guests for “Birds in Flight” will see macaws, sun conures, falcons, hawks, vultures and owls up close as the birds soar by just inches away, demonstrating natural behaviors and aerial acrobatics under the open sky. The show has previously played to rave reviews at the Bronx Zoo, Philadelphia Zoo and Birmingham Zoo.
“We are thrilled to bring our guests up close and personal with this amazing show,” said zoo director Pat Simmons. “It’s high-energy, educational and features beautiful exotic birds flying overhead and interacting with guests. And the timing of bringing this program to the North Carolina Zoo couldn’t be better.”
