Lorikeet House Etiquette
Please wait at the entrance to the Lorikeet House; a volunteer or staff person will lead you into the exhibit. Timed entry tickets will be used on busy days. Watch your step, the rainforest can be slippery! Please walk while inside the exhibit.
Did you buy a nectar cup ticket? Be sure to pick up your nectar cup at the Nectar Hut before going into the Lorikeet House.
No strollers allowed in the Lorikeet House — stroller parking is available in the lobby.
If you are wearing jewelry (especially sparkly earrings, necklaces, or bracelets), we recommend taking it off. The lorikeets may become fascinated with your shiny objects, and may play with or pull on them.
Don’t let a lori eat your lunch! No people food or drinks in the Lorikeet House. Please dispose of nectar cups in the recycling bin.
Do not chase the birds. You can hold out a whole hand or a first, NOT a finger, for a bird to walk onto. Let the birds approach you when they are ready. If they feel threatened, they may bite!
Poop happens. If you are one of the lucky ones, paper towels are available at the exit.
For your health and the health of the birds, sanitize your hands before and after visiting the exhibit.
