A Safe Haven for Birds

By Linda Tancs

With a zeal for conservation of waterfowl and wetlands, Sylvan Heights Bird Park is a birder’s paradise. Its location in the hilly marshlands of Scotland Neck, North Carolina, is ideal for both breeding and exhibition. Hosting over 2,000 birds, you can view waterfowl, parrots, toucans, flamingos and other exotic birds from South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. Much of the conservation work takes place at the avian breeding center, where rare and endangered waterfowl species (currently numbering around 1,400 worldwide) are raised. The lower edge of the park is bordered by a natural wetland, where a safari trail and overlooks give you opportunities to view native North Carolina wildlife. Allow at least two hours for your visit.
