                  About the Friends of the Aviary

The Friends of the Aviary is a wonderfully dedicated volunteer group in Hamilton Ontario, drawn from all walks of life, devoted to the preservation and advancement of the Aviary and the care of its birds.

Our Principle Aims Are:
  • To maintain a vibrant, healthy aviary exhibit, planned and managed in a practical fashion by volunteers, which will attract, educate and delight visitors, and be a source of pride for the City of Hamilton.
  • To use the Aviary and its birds as an educational tool to improve awareness of nature to the general public.

  • parakeets, (including common pet species, as well as rarer and more exotic),
  • peacocks

At present we are not equipped to handle softbills or waterfowl in any numbers, nor do we house birds of prey.
