Beautiful spot in the middle of SLC. The birds are nicely presented. Catch a show if you can. We saw one called the unbreakable egg. Good for the kids. Favorite was the flamingo habitat.

It is a surprise to even Utahns to find this lovely bird sanctuary in the corner of a city block. This site is a great way to introduce children to the word "aviary" and help adults get closer to the flying creatures around us.
