Fodor's Expert Review Birds of Eden
Built over a valley cutting through an old-growth forest, this magical sanctuary is a free-flight aviary spanning five dome-enclosed acres. More than 3,500 birds of 220 species fly, flutter, and perch here, some of which are quite tame. The main focus is African birds, and you'll see African grey parrots, Cape canaries, and greater flamingos. Take time to sit on one of the benches and listen to their calls—it's like being in the Amazon. You can grab a bite at the little restaurant overlooking the flamingo pond. Buy a memento or a gift at the well-stocked gift shop as you leave.
