Flamingo Gardens Aviary

This is a place I once visited as a child and I am so happy the place is still there and going strong as a Botanical Garden and Wildlife Sanctuary.

Flamingo Gardens in Davie Florida

Here are a few photos from a walk through the 25,000 square foot Everglades free-flight facility, housing one of the largest collections of wading birds in America with over 250 birds representing more than 45 species native to Florida. The five unique ecosystems of the Florida Everglades are represented through the display of native plants; coastal prairie, mangrove swamp, cypress forest, subtropical hardwood hammock, and sawgrass prairie.

I think Rule #14 should be a bit higher on the list possibly in the top 5 at least.
