Best Place to Befriend a Cockatoo

J&M Aviaries

When the kids clamor for feathered friends, we take them to the Bird Sanctuary at J&M Aviaries. Tours are available, during which we can wander past llamas, goats, emu, donkeys, lemurs, marmosets, and over 85 species of tropical birds. We can even watch baby birds being hand-fed. J&M also has birds for sale, so we?ve got to be careful, or we?ll end up with a house full of canaries, cockatoos, parrots, and macaws. Older kids should be sure to ask about volunteer opportunities.
