  • We have traveled many places to see birds so a chance to see California condors was a no-brainer. The Center has a couple in a large exhibit where they have some room to spread their wings and fly a b...  more »
  • They have a very classy facility with a wide range of birds. Everyone was very knowledgeable about each bird and the circumstances that brought them to the facility. Highly recommend.  more »
  • We enjoyed the variety of birds of prey, though a small variety, and learned a lot from the demo done by a volunteer. The middle-eastern display was a surprise, but good to introduce diversity and glo...  more »

  • The World Center for Birds of Prey is a wonderful family destination! Our boys were enthralled with the hands-on educational exhibits as well as getting to see such majestic birds up close. We also enjoyed walking the short trail and getting a beautiful view of the Boise valley! I highly recommend this for anyone who has kids that are interested in birds - it was enjoyable for the whole family!
  • The library opens at specific times and if you make it in, with the tour guide only, you have only a few minutes after the tour guide finished to view the rest of it and it is quite extensive. Unfortunate. The gift shop in the main bldg has bird of prey kites! The area with the true to life wings is wonderful, and so is the exhibit showing all the bird eggs. The pond area outside with seating is clean, charming, and peaceful. There are many nice things here.
  • Birds of prey sanctuary was great. My wife and I had just moved up from California amd this was one of the first places we visited. The sanctuary was placed at the top of a hill with great views surrounding. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. As we were walking around the sanctuary we were approached by a young lady who worked there and given a background into each bird we saw. We learned where the birds were acquired, what their habits are and everything in between. We stayed for the falcon show which was in an open air natural rock bleacher arena. There were posts around the seating area that the falcons would be able to perch on. As the falconer was speaking his bird would fly around the guests and even swoop by a few heads putting on a great show. I would definitely recommend visiting.
  • Amazing place! This was such a fun stop for our family. The gift shop has everything a bird-lover could dream of! The live raptor presentation was very entertaining! Loved seeing all the birds too.
  • Terrific place for families. Wonderful non profit.... Always needing volunteers!
