  • This is a great place to see birds up close. The staff is very eager and willing to share information about each and every resident that lives there. Don't miss the video at the end of the tour. That was extremely interesting. I would say going here is a lot of bang for the buck. It's a lot of entertainment and a lot of information and I would highly recommend it. I took guests from out of town and they were very impressed.
  • We enjoyed our visit very much. While not a large facility, it has a lot of info about various birds of prey and takes kindly care of injured birds, some of which would otherwise not survive a return to the wind. We saw various birds, including hawks, eagles, osprey (and cardinals). There is a gazebo on the water where you could bring a lunch. May 12 will be a baby owl event that sounds very interesting. It's a good place to spend an hour or two. Moshe was helpful and had good info. Plenty of parking.
  • Really great place. They use their space well. You have a house with enclosures surrounding it that makes for a lovely walk. All the birds are beautiful. They have a few opportunities to enjoy getting to see the birds without being blocked by fencing which is super cool. The staff are helpful and super nice. They have a small vet tech outer building and a pretty big lake gazebo. The only thing that I was sad about is there looks like a large building where the birds get flight exercised and while you can't go in you're to be able to live stream it from a TV but the setup wasn't working. I definitely would have liked watching it if given the chance. The best part is the frequency and variety of birds staff will bring out to the front on a glove. We saw 3 birds up close this way. For any bird lover this is a must. Owls Hawks and Eagles!
  • We had our first visit here last weekend and really enjoyed it. They do a great job caring for and rehabilitating these amazing birds. Eagles, hawks, osprey, falcons, owls etc. We will definitely be going back!
  • Nice for a quick outing. They close at 4 so I recommend going around 3 & then you can see some of the birds up close as the put them in for the night. You can get some really good pictures then.
