Sacramento Zoo Birds

There are more than 9,000 species of birds alive today, occupying all of the world’s continents and habitats. Yet despite their amazing variety and diversity, all birds have one unique characteristic: feathers.

Due to exhibit maintenance, weather conditions and animal care requirements, some of the animals may not be viewable. If you are interested in a particular species, please call 916-808-5888 or email the Member & Visitor Services Office to find out if you will be able to see those animals during your visit.
