Our feathered friends
A Warm Welcome to Our New Residents
During your recent visit to the the Gardens, you might have noticed the charming addition of two new feathered friends. We are thrilled to introduce you to an African Grey parrot and an Amazon parrot, who have found a loving home next to Polly and Casper on the Terrace.
These delightful birds have recently joined our botanical family, coming from a nearby site that is closing down. We couldn’t be happier to welcome them to their new home here at the Gardens. As they settle in, we encourage you to pay them a visit and say hello. You may hear them before you see them, one in particular is very keen to make themselves known!
A Sad Farewell to Our Peafowl
We are deeply saddened to share the news that our Peafowl have unfortunately passed away, whilst off show, from natural causes. Due to the upcoming developmental works around the site, the difficult decision has been made not to replace the free roaming Peafowl, as it would pose a safety risk to both the birds and the project team. We may well be able to introduce them once again when our capital project is completed.
In the meantime, we invite you to come and meet our new African Grey and Amazon parrot, who are already spreading joy with their delightful presence. Your support and understanding mean the world to us as we continue to create a haven of beauty, nature, and tranquility at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
