A new attraction at the North Carolina Zoo near Asheboro highlights exotic birds. The fast-paced “Birds in Flight” features majestic macaws, sun conures, falcons, hawks, vultures and owls up close and personal or doing aerial acrobatics under the open sky. Visitors to the zoo — the largest “natural habitat” zoo in the country — also can see a wide range of critters and engage in fun activities such as its Air Hikes Ropes Course. For more information, call 800-488-0444 or visit nczoo.org.
