Tennessee Aquarium visitors may be surprised to discover a wide variety of bird species throughout River Journey and Ocean Journey. Look for them rocketing out of the water at Penguins’ Rock
, soaring overhead in the Cove Forest
and Delta Swamp
, perched in the Tropical Cove
and roaming through the rainforest setting of the Butterfly Garden
. Meet new birds, such as a Eurasian eagle owl, trumpeter hornbill, talking parrots and red-fronted macaws while visiting Ranger Rick’s Backyard Safari
. Our feathered friends delight guests and help bring our exhibits to life in a much different way than the creatures that swim below the water’s surface. Meet the Aquarium’s awesome avian species and make bird watching a part of your next Tennessee Aquarium visit.
