Birds are a component of most zoo collections. Some zoos have relatively few species and some zoos have huge bird collections (e.g., San Diego and Bronx) that are major components of their identities. Many zoo goers seem to skittle past the bird exhibits, perhaps impressed by large birds of prey, colorful parrots, or penguins, but disinterested in the vast majority of the bird kingdom. Assuming that a major role for zoos is to expose visitors to important parts of the animal world and inspire appreciation for them, what are the best bird exhibits that you have seen that do this? Are there any model bird exhibits out there for inspiring bird appreciation in the average zoo visitor who may not already be turned on to birds? I was really impressed with the Wings of Asia aviary at Zoo Miami which had great introductory exhibits at the entrance showing the connections between birds and dinosaurs (i.e., that birds are dinosaurs). This impressed me as an attempt to try and generate some deeper interest than just "oh, it's a pretty bird".
