ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Bird lovers have a special treat to look forward to this weekend, and we've got a sneak peek. The grand opening of the Aviary at the Flint Riverquarium is Saturday from 10 until 4 PM. Kids under 12 get in for free.

Some of the birds, are very comfortable with humans. Others, are best viewed from a distance. All are very interesting.

Curator Richard Brown said, "It's something you don't expect. The way the birds act and what they look like and it's something you just don't see everyday. It's really a unique experience."

Kids can participate in a scavenger hunt to find and name the birds Saturday, and be entered to win a pair of binoculars.
