The Ohio Bird Sanctuary is licensed by the Division of Wildlife and US Fish and Wildlife for the purpose of education and native bird rehabilitation. The birds in our care are not pets and touch by the general public is not permitted. We do have domestic Bantam hens as ambassadors for our feathered friends program and these are able to be petted. When you enter the songbird aviary many of the birds will alight near you and readily take food from the seed cups we provide.
