I was able to photograph hundreds of birds at the Bubali Bird Sanctuary. I would recommend that you wear long pants and closed toed shoes as you will be walking in potentially muddy areas. Come early in the day, or near sunset for best birding.

The place is calm and nice to walk, but there are few birds and it is difficult to find the entrance.

Maybe we assumed wrong, but a lot of dirt and construction equipment, as if they tore up the sanctuary and were getting to build condos.

The low-keyed Bubali Bird Sanctuary has a viewing tower and some walking trails that lizards and iguana-type creatures also frequent. Admission is free and about 10 different birds (water and land) were spotted during our late morning visit there; as with any birding, patience is...More

There are none. It's free. Beware of the rotted hole on the tower's deck.
