America’s long history and fascination with birds is easily demonstrated through a quick review of some common idioms: “wild goose chase,” “crazy as a loon,” “proud as a peacock,” “fly like an eagle,” “the early bird gets the worm,” et al. This cultural absorption of birds into our daily use of the English language signals an overwhelming interest in these flying creatures. And with this fascination comes a national venue where guests can fawn over fowl, extol orioles, praise the jays, and celebrate the plate-billed toucan: the National Aviary. Located on Pittsburgh’s North Side in Allegheny Commons West, the National Aviary houses more than six hundred birds from around the world and has been showcasing the unique collection to visitors since 1952. Like the Pittsburgh Zoo, the National Aviary is organized by region / ecosystem with birds that are indigenous to tropical rainforests, wetlands, and grasslands. In addition to these regional markers, though, there are also specialty exhibits where specific birds rule the roost: Penguin Point, Condor Court, and Eagle Hall. During the first full weekend of January 2013, the National Aviary is featuring an exhibit of “Grand Birds of America,” a celebration that involves flamingos, pelicans, owls, and a special feeding demonstration of the great bald eagle. The Aviary also shows bird related films, hosts events for schools, is available for private functions, and hosts regular holiday themed festivities. Having the rare indoor opportunity to gawk at a hawk or ogle an eagle is something that should not be missed. And as a local landmark, the National Aviary is easily accessible to Western Pennsylvanians and bird enthusiasts from the world over.
