The Gilcrease Sanctuary is worth visiting is you are a local or a tourist. I couldn't be happier to pet little billy goats, admiring several llamas observe you from the lookout of a small hill. It's fun talking with very vocal and colorful macaws, cockatiels, love birds, and amazon parrots. Many of the birds are in portable cages so you can get up close to them without getting bitten! Staff are friendly and will take the birds out of the cages so you can take a picture without the cage wire in the frame. It's a nice little stroll and you can visit a desert tortoise, Koi pond, miniature horses, burros, and of course an extensive flock of African geese and Pekin ducks. The fee is a donation (around $4) and it's an easy 1 hour to 2 hour walk around the sanctuary. Wild turkeys (or tame as you see fit) stroll around in pairs, and pose for your photo. There are ostriches in huddles and emus that are more curious about you than you are about them!
