aviary

An aviary is a facility dedicated solely to the keeping of birds. The National Aviary in Pittsburgh is an example of an aviary. It currently is home to 600 birds, representing over 200 species. An aviary is also a name for a "Cadillac" bird cage. It's an environment for birds. In the spring and early summer, birds are competing for breeding and nesting sites. Males will fly fearlessly after an intruder to defend their territory. A male bird may mistake his reflection in a window for a rival and attack the reflected image. There are several ways to eliminate the reflection and ease this situation. The simplest suggestion is to put up your window screens if you haven't done so already. You may also cut strips of newspaper and tape them to the outside of the affected window. Using dark paper, you may also cut a silhouette of a flying hawk, owl, or falcon and tape this to the outside of the window. Libraries have books which contain patterns for bird silhouettes or you may choose to visit your local feed store or nature center and purchase a pre-cut weather-proof silhouette. Most baby birds that are presumed orphaned usually aren't. To determine if the bird is simply separated from its parents, look around for the nest or the parents. If the bird has developed adult feathers, has a short tail, and is able to hop along the ground, the parents are probably nearby. The bird will probably attempt to fly again soon. Human interference may impede a valuable flight lesson. If the bird is in direct sunlight, try to move it to a shaded area. If the chick still has its soft, fluffy down feathers, try to return it to its nest. Birds have little or no sense of smell and will be unable to detect that the chick has been handled. When a bird is purposely pushed out of a nest, it may not be healthy. Adult birds can sense when a developmental problem exists. The mother will push the bird out rather than expend valuable food and energy on a chick that will not survive. It is difficult for people to determine if a bird has developmental problems simply by its appearance. If you are in doubt, please consult a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. These individuals are trained and experienced in helping orphaned and injured wildlife. Call your local game commission or sheriff for information.
