We stumbled upon this bird sanctuary by accident. We really enjoyed walking thru. It was feeding time and that was cool. It is a small place but really interesting. From what I understand they are funded 100% by donations. Definitely worth checking out.

Another place that is tucked away and easy to miss. The price is right since it's free and they just asked for donations. Lots of needs water birds, some being rehabbed and lots of wild ones nesting in trees. Good place for bird lovers

We did enjoy our trip there although it was quite smelly and unkempt. We walked through and viewed most exhibits but felt they were in need of more help in their rescue efforts.

walked a few miles on beach to get here. Used washroom and bought bottle water. Its a great 30 minute Bird tour, and it does not smell too strongly

Would be a bit of a long walk. Take the trolley that runs all day long, or nice long walk on the beach. Easy access from the beach. Well worth the visit!
