  • This is my 3rd visit to the World Bird Sanctuary, and the first in memory for my 6 year old. He enjoyed looking at the birds. I like how they give the story of each one under their care, for the durat...  more »
  • It was great seeing HUGE bald eagles, hawks, owls, condors, and other birds literally just a few feet away. It was even better knowing that every one of these were rescued birds, birds with a broken foot, for example, that surgery could not fix; or a wing. Some birds were elderly former outreach training birds that are now blind. They are still beautiful, still majestic. See the pictures. It was exciting to see the eagle eating the rabbit (that the ranger told us the bird had hidden from her because she was surprised to see it eating something after she had just cleaned the cage). And seeing them spread their wings in the sun was awesome.
  • A free, nature oriented attraction. There is a nice playground structure, also a gift shop. Special events and animal encounters are available. Check the website for details. Parking is limited, so arrive early for peak times and events.
  • Not only a sanctuary but we can view plus donate to their cause! Worth the ride. I love the owls!! A place to go whether you go once a year or to bring visiting guests! Excellent for nature lovers!
  • Nice variety of rescued birds. The facility, and the cages in particular are fairly run down. I assume this is a volunteer run not for profit organization. It's amazing that this is operated without charging admission fees. During the 2017 solar eclipse the entry fee was fairly steep.
  • Wonderful place to see up close the amazing beauty and wonder of different eagles, hawks, owls and other species of birds! Fun gift shop too with animals to pet.
