    On August 2 I visited Sylvan Heights Bird Park located in Scotland Neck, NC. This was my second visit there and I absolutely love their setup and birds! I highly recommend this place for anyone to visit. You can find out more about their park at www.shwpark.com.

    Here are the pictures. Some are quite blurry but I decided to include them to show the vast array of birds that can be seen there.

    None of the pictures have labels, but if there is one that you really want to know I can ID it for you to the best of my ability.
    Enjoy the pictures!

    I am glad you like the pictures! Their new exihibit, the Landing Zone, is a lot of fun. It is like paradise there for me.

    I also suggest reading The Waterfowl Man of Sylvan Heights. I really enjoyed it.

    I already have an autographed copy of Mike Lubbock's book. It really is a good book. Take care.

    No problem! For the most part my birds are great, but while we were away I lost my Sylvan Heights white mandarin drake and a ring teal drake. I bet that video was cool.
