One of the things I loved best about my visit to the Nashville Zoo was Lorikeet Landing. A netted enclosure, after washing your hands with anti-bacterial gel, you go inside and see the lorikeets flying around from tree to tree. They are very beautiful and colorful, and as you can see from the photos, friendly! If you stand still, they will land on your head or shoulders. Be careful not to startle them, as they may nip.
