  • Nancy is knowledgeable and experienced with her parrots. Please consider a donation when you visit, this is one of Key West's hidden gems.
  • Ok, so is in Nancy's backyard so please don't think you are going to a high end zoo but her birds are amazing. She is a delight to talk to and will not hesitate to ask questions or let you interact with a few select birds.
  • It's amazing what Nancy does for the birds. It's very nice talking to Nancy about all kinds of things and watching the birds. If you like tropical birds you should really visit this place.
  • March-April 2009 We rented the small home/shop in the middle of the then secret garden, It was just like being tn the back woods of Belize, FANTASTIC!! MY wife wasn't very happy when the kitchen window fell in on her, but hell that's what the jungle is all about. Her work with the parrots and unique plants is to be praised. and appreciated. Thank you Nancy for the opportunity.
  • This is a great place to hangout, cool off and meet the birds. Nancy is wonderful!
