Gilcrease Nature Sanctuary is home to many, many birds ranging from parakeets to macaws and even a Toucan!¬†The population also includes many farm-raised birds such as emus, ostriches, chickens and peacocks. Many varieties of ¬†ducks, swans and various types of geese live year around in the pond area. Illustrating that the sanctuary is not just for birds, non-aviary residents include giant tortoises, llamas, donkeys, horses, ponies, goats and pigs. There is even a rescued mule-deer named “Bambi” for everyone to learn about.
