Feed the colorful lorikeets in Lorikeet Forest by purchasing a cup of nectar at the entrance for $4.
The birds will land on your arms, shoulders, or hands when you offer them nectar, which they drink from small cups using their absorbent tongues. Be sure to follow guidance from Aquarium staff members on how to safely feed and interact with the lorikeets. There is a handwashing station outside the aviary exit.
