Despite their name, Red-Crested Cardinals are not closely related to the true Cardinal family. They are actually a type of Tanager.
Red-Crested Cardinals are well-known for their beautiful bird song. Their voice is described as “sweet, melodious and slow” and pairs of Red-Crested Cardinals may sing together for several days in the South American spring before they begin nest building.
Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.Taylor F.

Lots of great exhibits and animals to see! Fun gift shop and learning center.Stephanie N.
The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.Bill T.
