Hispanic Heritage Month at Tracy Aviary (Español)

21.09.2020
Cada año, los estadounidenses celebran el Mes Nacional de la Herencia Hispana del 15 de septiembre al 15 de octubre, celebrando las contribuciones y la importancia de los hispanos en los Estados Unidos y los ciudadanos estadounidenses cuyos antepasados vinieron de España, México, el Caribe, Centroamérica y Sudamérica. Aquí en Tracy Aviary no solo celebramos la comunidad latina en Utah (que ahora representa cerca del 14% de la población local) sino que también celebramos a nuestras aves que provienen de América Latina. Nuestra colección de aves ofrece un espectro único de colores y atributos que reflejan la población hispana en los Estados Unidos. La historia de los latinos en las Américas es tan diversa como nuestras aves que representan todos esos hermosos países.

Thunderbird Thursday: August 2020

14.08.2020
Where's Whiner? For the past several months, we have been highlighting the adventures of our southern ground hornbill dynamic duo, Epic and Elle, as they worked through their first breeding season as a couple. While Epic and Elle were exploring nest options and pair-bonding, our older male, Whiner, has been vacationing in the hornbill "backyard" habitat to give our dynamic duo a chance to bond without the older male getting in the middle of things. Now that the breeding season has concluded, Whiner is being introduced back to the main exhibit with Epic and Elle! The family group have been able to see each other, touch, and share food and enrichment thought the entire separation, but we are still taking things slow while reintroducing the group. Say hi to Whiner next time you stop by our southern ground hornbill enclosure! - Primary Aviculturist AllieTracy Aviary memberships are now 35% off!

Milford Monday: Inca Bathtime

15.07.2020
Milford here for #MilfordMonday! Splish, splash, Inca is taking a bath! Do you know why birds love to bathe? For birds, it is essential that they keep their feathers in good condition. Bathing is an important part of feather maintenance. Dampening the feathers helps protect against sun damage, loosens the dirt, removes bugs and mites, and makes their feathers easier to preen. You can see Inca, as well as all of my Bird Show friends at our Outdoor Bird Show, every Tuesday-Sunday. Show times change daily, and will be listed online and at the Aviary. https://tracyaviary.org/hours-admis...

Hornbill Shower

02.07.2020
It's bath time with our southern ground hornbill duo, Epic and Elle! Hornbills love all 3 major methods of bathing-sun bathing, dust bathing, and bathing in water. Our group prefer to have water mist down on them, rather than standing and bathing in a pool. We have sprinkler misters set up in their exhibits for them that run a few times per day, but they especially love when it rains. They will stand outside in the rain until they get absolutely drenched, then go inside and dry off in their heated building.#ThunderbirdThursday #EpicAndElle #SouthernGroundHornbill #TracyAviary #MoreThanAnAviary

Happy International Mud Day!

27.06.2020
On June 29th, join Tracy Aviary in celebrating International Mud Day in honor of one of our favorite spring pastimes: playing in the mud! International Mud Day aims to quell fears of "getting dirty" and encourage kids here and around the world to get outside, connect with nature, and most importantly, get MUDDY. While we can't possibly overstate the benefits of mud, we also understand that getting dirty isn't always a simple task. International Mud day is for everyone - including kids and families who may not have the wardrobe necessary to get out and play with abandon, making International Mud day the perfect time to make a donation of kids clothes! Participate at home as we share some tips and tricks on how to make the most of the mud.
