Shorebird Aviary

Step into the walk-through aviary to enter the home of native water and shorebirds in the peaceful tidal slough habitat.  Learn about the endangered light-footed clapper rail breeding program and, if you’re lucky, catch a peek at a clapper rail chick waiting to be released into the wild salt marshes of Southern California.

Look for these animals!

Light-footed clapper rail, snowy egret, black-crowned night heron, black oyster catcher, red-breasted merganser, hooded merganser, and more.
