If anyone out there is searching for a great place to visit for your family, or in my case, for a school field trip, make sure you include Parrot Mountain on your itinerary! They give a terrific deal for school groups! A word of advice for groups arriving via a charter bus, don't even attempt to put your poor driver to the test of trying to climb the rather steep driveway that leads to the venue. Instead, call them(Number is posted on a billboard at the bottom of their driveway,) and they are obliging to scoot your busload by way of a couple shuttle runs. This is parrot paradise, what a guess, as well as quite a few of other interesting bird species. The Christian-based owners will present a mini-"Meet our stars" program with interesting capsules of how the birdies found a home on the mountain. Babies are actually available for purchase if you have a few spare hundreds of dollars in your pocket. The mountain also presents a great variety of flora to accompany the lovely fauna residents, some of which are a little too nervous to be petted or fed, as well as inspirational presentations of God's love found in the Bible via several displays including the garden of Eden. All of this leads to a fulfilling revitalization of one's spirit as we realize how awesome is He, as presented by this MUST SEE venue. On this particular revisit, I found my way back to a feathered friend I fell in love with two years ago. "GT" is an adorable Cockatoo that will soon offer her head to be stroked, and if she really senses that you're diggin' on her, will offer the ultimate compliment by lifting a wing for a rub. Excuse me, but this cowboy got a double wing invitation. I think we're engaged! I know the wife would never allow it, but I inquired if she was purchasable, only to be informed that all of the adoptees are reserved for the original owners ; in case they wanted to take them back. That is just awesome and shows how truly wonderful the owners are! You will be blessed by visiting this paradise, and might I put in a plug for the Inn at Christmas Place, as well. God loves you!
This was a spur of the moment decision. So glad we did. It was an amazing experience. Will go back!! The flowers were beautiful. The birds were absolutely amazing. Being able to interact and hold the birds was great.
What a lovely place (other than the slanting parking lot due to being on the side of a mountain)! Picturesque and peaceful. The highlight for me was cuddling with George. Had no idea these birds were so affectionate and interactive. For young children, be sure to plan your trip in season when the bird shows are being performed. For the rest of you, pick a fair weather day and enjoy!
Was not sure what to expect, but this turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip!! My kids ages 17 and 12 loved it. Would definitely go again! The parrots were very entertaining and the gardens are beautiful. A little hard to walk- it is on a hillside, but other than that it is wonderful!!
