Birds moved indoors

SHARE THIS

Due to fall migration, we are once again moving many of our susceptible birds temporarily indoors or inside a protected habitat. This is as a precaution for our birds’ safety as cases of highly pathogenic avian influenza are on the rise in Ohio again. 

Currently, all of our birds remain healthy. There is no apparent risk to humans at this time. For our birds here at zoo, the risk comes from native birds who land at the zoo during fall migration. 

We know you love our feathered friends as much as we do. The health and welfare of our birds is our top priority. They will all return to their outdoor habitats as soon as the risk of exposure is low.
