Yerevan Zoo has around 350 bird species, like for example the Bearded Vulture (Gypaetus barbatus), the Booted Eagle (Hieraaetus pennatus), the Budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) and many others.
Nearly all of the bird species, living in the zoo, are quite capricious and require special care, keen attention, diet and climate conditions. There are five staff members who are in charge of taking care of the big and diverse family of birds, living in the zoo. Donara Khachatryan has been working in the zoo for 38 years. She is the head of the birds section.
