EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) — If you’ve been planning to visit several of the different bird species at Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Gardens, you’re in luck! The zoo confirmed with Eyewitness News that the birds are back!

The zoo said they moved the birds indoors in April as a precaution to avoid the ongoing avian flu.
