Harewood Bird Garden is home to exotic species of birds housed in sympathetic surroundings. Many of the birds are classed as near threatened, vulnerable, endangered & critically threatened in the wild in the IUCN listings. Others are classed as lower concern in the wild, which still means there is concern over their future safety, or even that there is very little known about their numbers or status in the wild.

You'll see Penguins, Flamingos, Owls and Macaws and to name a few. Visitors can wander through gardens past aviaries and enclosures which are home to birds from Africa, the Americas, Australasia and Indo-China. Read the labels that give fun facts about the birds and tell you about where they came from, their habitat, diet and behaviour.
