Lose yourself in the brightly colored world of Lorikeets! With nectar in hand, feed these beautiful parrots in their open-air exhibit at Micke Grove Zoo. Visiting these creatures will give you a tropical encounter that you and your family will never forget!
WHAT IS A LORIKEET?
Lorikeets are brightly colored parrots found throughout the islands of Australia, Papua New Guinea, Indonesia, and Polynesia. They are characterized by their brush-tipped tongues that can soak up nectar, making it easy to eat on the go!
Open daily June 21 through September 28 from 10AM-12PM & 1PM-4PM.
Exhibit may close temporarily without notice in order to provide the lorikeets adequate periods of rest.
Admission to the Lorikeet Encounter exhibit is included with zoo admission ($5.00 for guests 14 and older; $3.00 for guests 3-13, and free for children ages 2 and under and members of the Micke Grove Zoological Society).
The cost of nectar is $1.00 per cup and cannot be refunded.
