The aviary in Niagara Falls is beautiful to explore, especially as a warm escape (like the butterfly conservatory!) on a cold winters day. Although it is outlandishly expensive, for the month of February the tickets are greatly reduced if you order them on-line, making it only ridiculously expensive. Once I swallowed the bitterness of the admission fee, we all had a wonderful time. Even on a Saturday, it wasn't too busy and we took lots of time to explore and to marvel at the beauty of these birds up close.
