Many zoos in North America feature walk-through exhibits that allow members of the public to interact with psittacine species, as these exhibits are popular with guests and can generate additional revenue. There is limited research available on the life expectancy and common causes of mortality of psittacines when group-housed in aviaries. This study compiled data on 496 budgerigar (Melopsittacus undulatus) mortalities at a walk-through aviary at a North American zoo from March 2009 to March 2019, including histopathology on 62 tissue sets collected post mortem, and gross necropsy data for 163 birds deceased from March 2015 to March 2019. The mean age at death or euthanasia of all fledged birds from 2015 to 2019 was 3.57 ± 1.58 yr. The most common causes of death or euthanasia found on gross necropsy were granulomatous disease (39.2%), trauma (16.0%), and Macrorhabdus ornithogaster (13.5%). The most common histologic finding was M. ornithogaster, described as the primary pathologic finding in 31.7% of submitted tissue sets, and recorded as a secondary pathologic finding in 53.2% of submitted tissue sets. Mycobacterial disease was the primary pathologic finding in 25.3% of submitted tissue sets, and was recorded as an additional pathologic finding in 35.4% of submitted tissue sets.
