  • This was a little out of the way place. Please check the hours of operation. We arrived 30 minutes before closing and they were closing up and putting the birds away. There was still a full charge, bu...  more »

  • Really enjoyed visiting with the birds. Lauren was very informative and you can see a true connection between her and them. A small non-profit program that cares for and finds homes for unwanted exotics, it's sad but really great that there is Free Flight to help!
  • This is a phenomenal experience. I've taken friends and grandchildren. Everyone has a great time seeing the beautiful and varied parrots. You can talk to them, feed them and hold them. Amazing!!
  • Wonderful place to visit & learn about our exotic feathered friends! Essentially a safe haven for birds that have come from numerous backgrounds & run by awesome volunteers who dedicate their time & love to give these birds the best lives possible, all while giving a fun experience to visitors & educating them on all aspects of these beautiful feather children. Donations of newspaper & things that can be used to make toys, such as wine corks, (not synthetic) & empty 6pck cardboard beer holders encouraged!
  • I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this bird sanctuary. All the volunteers were very friendly and showed me the proper way to handle a bird. I didn't think I'd be brave enough to do it, but I was able to get a few parrots to perch on my arm. I even purchased some food so I could feed them some grapes, kale, mandarins, and whatever else was in the bowl. It can get loud when many birds are all squawking at once -- usually because a new bird is boarding there while its owners are away -- but otherwise it was quite a peaceful and enjoyable place to spend some time on the weekend. The donation is reasonable, given that I spent over an hour there!
  • We came here on my daughter's field trip. It's not a big bird sanctuary, probably as big as a large backyard. But there are many birds, some on perches and some in cages.The expert was knowledgeable and for a little extra you can feed some of the birds.
