PARAMUS, NJ - The Bergen County Zoo at Van Saun County Park, Paramus, opened a new, interactive seasonal exhibit today featuring Budgerigars, often called “budgies,” which are small docile birds that can be easily trained and feed on small seeds.

The exhibit features 350 budgies in a 2,400 square feet screened enclosure. Guests can enter the enclosure with a feeding stick and budgies will flock to the sticks and allow for close interaction between the guests and the birds.

Admission to this exhibit is $2 per person and is separate from the zoo’s general admission fee.
