These are sponsored (FREE) bird shows to the public. Our programs have different content with various sets of birds in them. Scroll to the bottom of this page to read what’s included in each program! Don’t think bird shows are just for kids either! 60-100 year old kids will love these shows and be AMAZED at their avian antics!

Did you know that the hyacinth macaw’s cobalt-blue feathers turn an emerald green when wet? That is because they really aren’t blue! Whaaaat? Come to the programs to find out more.
Why does a toucan have such a long beak?
Can an owl turn it’s head all the way around?
Can birds really talk or sing? Come to ANY of these sponsored programs to learn more.

We have the Midwest’s ONLY performing bird show Awesome Birds! If  you haven’t seen this, you MUST come – it will show you how intelligent these birds are. They have learned how to roller skate, ride a bicycle, play basketball, raise the American flag, drive a vehicle, bowl, spell words and much more.
