  • It's not a zoo or a theme park, it's a wildlife rescue, so don't go in expecting snow cones and whatnot... But it's great that these birds are being looked after and really is an awesome place to visit. I'll definitely never look at these birds the same way again; they're real characters! And really, when was the last time you could go somewhere and actually converse with an animal?
  • Absolutely loved this place. Saw the signs along the highway and figured we would check it out. The owners are very informative and passionate about their birds. Learned a lot about these beautiful creatures. Lots of laughs dancing with the birds.
  • Neat spot. Kids enjoyed it. Some of the parrots talk a little. You'll leave having learned something new about parrots. Owner is nice. Tour is a bit short but cost is low and funds to to a good cause.
  • Cash only. Interesting, but we drove 40 minutes each way, and it wasn’t THAT interesting Cool to see the different variants!
  • Not what it once was. Parrot island is a bird sanctuary, not a zoo or a rich learning experience for kids. It's a stark dog kennel filled with bird cages. The birds are being cared for by a wonderful loving couple who keep the birds clean and healthy and social. The couple takes in unwanted birds and places the birds in the care of people who need companions, mostly elderly shut ins by the sounds of it. Some birds are left in the permanent care of the sanctuary. I'm glad this place exists, but I would not visit again.
