The World of Birds
This is a must for all families, pack your picnic basket for the day and take a trip to The World of Birds, It on one of the many benches and watch the flamingo’s on the lake. Wonder through the large bird enclosures and experience the birds around you. The last time I was there a bird wanted to perch on my shoulder. Magnificent Owls, Eagles and other fascinating birds. The monkey enclosure is great fun as these friendly fury animals try and open your hand convinced you have some treats for them. It can be a full days delight and will take you some time to get through this delightful journey.
These birds are rescued and re-rehabilitated, by amazing and wonderful volunteers. So If you have bird that needs help this is the place to take it, be sure to offer a donation no matter how small or large.
