We went here to see the birds and to watch them at the 4pm feeding. This is supposed to happen at the Copra house. We got there around 3:40pm. There were alot of birds in the area- saw motmots, hummingbirds and a number of Cocricos. The place is in disrepair especially the hummingbird feeders. The building itself seems to be... More

This bird sanctuary needs supporters. It's a great idea but in desperate need of some money spent on it. Feeding is at 8 and 4 and donations of 10 TT dollars pp help support it. Shame it's so run down. Lots of birds to see.

It is still worth a visit but it's obvious that the sanctuary has fallen on hard times. It's on the site of an old cocoa plantation which was devastated by a hurricane in the 60's or 70's, such a shame, it could be a very beautiful retreat. Did see lots of Cocoricos, a luscious humming bird and many "honey eaters",... More

I wish I could give this a better review, but it badly needs attention and grooming. We went for the 8 am feeding and weren't quite sure where to go once we went up the hill, but the caretaker pointed us in the right direction. There used to be paths to walk thru and see more of the land, but... More

If you want to see the national bird the cocoricos this is the place to go. We saw lots of pigeons, bananaqiuts and mot mots as well. We arrived there for the four o clock feeding. the place itself needs to upgraded but if you want to see birds its a good place to visit.

Sadly needing some tlc. The birds are fed at around 4pm and there are plenty to see, you can sit and watch from the shade,but otherwise there is very little else there now. There were some walks mentioned in the guide book but they weren't very clear. Entrance is free but the place relies on donations from visitors so please... More

Despite the lack of any upkeep this place did have a good variety of birds. Not much else to do there.

Go fo rthe 4pm feed and you'll see Cocricos, Motmots, Bananaquits all in abundance. Entrance is free but do please donate a decent amount of money it all goes to feed the birds. Unfortunately, in recent time, everytime a hummingbird feeder was purchased, someone stole it. A lovely, quiet, tranquil place, it is pleasant to just sit or gently explore... More

The birds are fed at 4pm each day and as the evening settles in you can enjoy the multitude of birds. Bring you binoculars. Do not bother during the day as the birds are out and about and you will be lucky to see even a few.

This is a good place to see birds especially at 8.00am and 4.00pm when they get fed, but don't expect any 'frills'. The place is unfortunately rather 'run down' and although, tidy, doesn't have much ambience. However, it isn't over-run with people either so if you want to bird watch, it's quiet and peaceful.
