The Aviary – founded in 1927 at Dundurn Castle – was relocated in 1996 to the Fieldhouse of the Royal Botanical Gardens’ former teaching gardens. The Friends of the Aviary will introduce you to Hamilton’s lively, colourful parrots – each with its own personality, story and place on this planet. Learn about their care and environmental plight.
