“A bird watching paradise”
Sylvan Heights Waterfowl is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization, and home to the Sylvan Heights Bird Park designed to give visitors an unforgettable up-close experience with over 2,000 ducks, geese, swans, and other exotic birds from around the world. Multinational Aviary Open to the public since October 2006, the 18-acre facility features large, walk- through aviaries displaying birds from South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Australia. Tranquil gardens and lush natural areas enhance the beauty of the birds on exhibit. At Sylvan Heights Bird Park, we not only seek to entertain and engage visitors, but to inspire and educate them about the importance of waterfowl, wildlife and wetland conservation. The Park's newest attractions, including the Bird's Nest Treehouse and Beaver Pond Blind, showcase the fascinating world of Eastern North Carolina's native animals and plants, and the habitats they live in. The opening of Sylvan Heights Bird Park in 2006 emerged from the legacy of one man—Mike Lubbock, affectionately known to many as the Waterfowl Man. The moniker is well deserved. Mike Lubbock is considered by many avian biologists to be the most intuitive and prolific waterfowl aviculturalist in the world. From his early work in England at the Wildfowl Trust to his permanent move to America, where he founded Sylvan Heights Waterfowl in 1985, Milke Lubbock was single-minded in his mission to unlock the mysteries of breeding birds.
I recommend this place for kids! Too nice!
Great park to view all kinds of birds, ducks, etc. Fun for everyone. Had 2 teen girls and 4 adults and all of us really enjoyed it. I was expecting a smallish park to get out of car for a while and walk around. We were there for over 2 hours and we hurried somewhat due to approaching storm. Lots of fun feeding birds and flamingos. Definitely stop!
Great Place to get out and walk for a few. My 15 and 17yr olds even enjoyed it!
It's adorable! The birds all seem to be friendly. Many of them walk up to the fence walls to look at you. Definitely worth getting the bag of bird food for $1 as well; you can feed flamingos with it!
We loved it there. Feeding the parakeets and flamingos was the kids favorite part. It was so peaceful and nice there. We totally recommend it.
