Trainers at Tracy Aviary are responsible for caring for our Bird Show Stars and training them for husbandry and show behaviors, as well as presenting shows and other educational programs.  This customized experience includes four hours of one-on-one time with our bird trainers, during which you will observe and assist in the care and training of our birds.  Play with a parrot, talk to a toucan, fly a falcon, enrich an emu, and more!  Participants will also receive a Junior Bird Trainer certificate and a photo with one of our bird show stars to commemorate their day.
