Outdoor Flight Cage Reopens
The Great Outdoor Flight Cage exhibition reopened to the public at the National Zoological Park after renovation. The flight cage, 90 feet high and 120 feet in diameter is one of the largest outdoor aviaries in North America. The refurbished exhibit features birds of North and South America. With the renovations new shrubs were added and the pathway was redesigned to ensure access for visitors with disabilities.
