A few remarks from guests who have visited are:

I’ve never seen this many birds in one place, this must be somewhat like the garden of eden must have been like, a spiritual oasis, the most beautiful and peaceful place I have ever been in, Is this heavens gate, Little paradise and so on I’ve learned so much about the care and well being of these magnificent creatures. Horticulturists say “these gardens rival the best”.

It’s beautiful to see birds in flight.

When you exit the secret garden you will come to the bird garden there you will find approximately 70 birds on open perches and here you can feed them seed from your hand, have pictures made with them or just walk around and look at them.
