Taking a walk through Tracy Aviary's new Owl Forest

The Tracy Aviary is showing off its newly opened Owl Forest exhibit, home to some of North America's coolest birds.

The new exhibit (which opened over Memorial Day weekend) boasts six species of owls - such as the short-eared owl (pictured) - in a habitat of 112 native conifers. It's a beautiful exhibit, and will be a cool shady refuge when the summer sun gets too hot.

The exhibit is part of the aviary's major upgrade and renovation, paid for by a $19.6 million bond that Salt Lake County voters approved in 2008.

The aviary is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day, at the southwest corner of Liberty Park (near the corner of 500 East and 1300 South). Check the website for admission prices.
