Parque das Aves (Park of the Birds = the Bird Park) is a privately owned and operated reserve featuring quite a large number of different bird species. Of particular interest are those that are in danger of extinction. There are several aviaries where people are allowed to walk through.

WATCH FOR FALLING BIRD POOP! if you go into the aviaries. One of our group came inches from having a VERY messy experience.

While the name implies that birds are only featured here, the fact is there are a few other animals among those in the collection, including caiman (slightly different nose bone structure, but looks a lot like an alligator) and butterflies.

The landscape of most of the park is relatively natural forest, though even there a number of the plant species are identified. The walking trails are well maintained and there are a number of restrooms scattered through the facility.

A map of the facility costs extra at the entrance booth.

Address: Avenida da Cataratas, km 17.1
Directions: Follow the signs to get to the entrance to Foz do Iguašu National Park. The bird park is directly across the street.
