Parrots of God

There is this place in Tennessee that is called Parrott Mountain. It’s way up on this mountain and the drive up is a little scary, but the trip is worth it. This whole park has rescued parrots and other types of birds in it. Parrotts

It was really cool as you could feed some of the parrots out of your hand…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

There were all colors…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Yellow…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Red…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Big and small…Parrott lorne feed

You could even feed them out of these little nectar cups…OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  The nectar was warm and the little birds just loved it. We also got our photo with the birds all over us. This is the guy who put the birds on us… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

All the birds on him ended up on us… our arms, hands, and shoulders. We bought a photo with the birds all over us, as 100% of the proceeds went to taking care of the birds. There also were all kinds of little parrots that were so cute… Parott multi

They had some interesting birds…ParottThe really cool thing about this place was there were mentions of God and Jesus all around this place in statues…TN Trip Sept 2013 184

    What an amazing day out. The birds so colorful and tame.
    I’m afraid I’m too far away to visit this lovely place (in the U.K.)
    Thanks for sharing

    The Happy Birds T-shirt made me laugh! I’ll tuck this bit of knowledge away for future reference– what a fun trip!
