  • Found this place on trip advisor and we were excited because my kids loved the bird exhibits at other attractions (Gatorland in Orlando, St Augustine Alligator Farm) and here you get to feed them. We missed the driveway twice when trying to get there - the entrance/parking wasn't what we expected and we even wondered if it was the right place and if it was open. It felt like we were parking in someone's yard. Even thought about turning around, but glad we didn't. Went up to the gate and rang the bell as the sign directs. Our guide came and let us into the office (shack) and gave us the rundown on how to feed the birds, including offering us bug spray. We each got a small basket of peanuts (in shell) and were able to walk around many cages feeding a number of different kinds of birds (of course many Macaws). It was fun to hear many of the birds talking. They have it clearly marked which birds are more friendly than others. They are very attentive to the kid's experience. She took an African Grey out for my kids to hold and answered all their many questions. The only reason I don't give it a 5 is that the grounds look dated and scruffy. But it was nice to support a mom and pop type organization that has a passion for what they do. Wear shoes, not flip flops, as she said they do have fire ants on the grounds. Enjoyable, inexpensive attraction for families.
  • At first we missed the entrance, but the stop was well worth the effort! You can feed and hold the birds, learned so much about thier care and how much personality they have! The proprietors do a good deed taking in unwanted pets and educating the public. The birds are very well cared for and loved. Please visit and donate to thier cause.
  • Neat little place to go feed about 30 different birds. Very hands on, like your own pets. Staff was very friendly and informative. We will definitely be visiting on a regular basis and recommending it to our friends!
  • We enjoyed our visit and really appreciate the time that was taken to educate us further. It was a great family outing. We will be back soon.
  • Great place for a casual, relaxed afternoon outing:) We loved the birds & feeding the other animals.
