Love the cause of this little rescue, the birds seem well looked after and you can tell the owners really care about them. Easy to spend 45 minutes or so in here talking to each bird, some of them are quite the character. Worth the...More

The bird sanctuary is an excellent learning experience. Set up to first watch a two minute video and then a visit with the caretakers to learn more about parrots in captivity. Consider donating to the educational learning and year round caring for these birds.

A bunch of supposedly rescued birds in a big row of cages? I wouldn't call that an attraction. I would hardly call it rescue either. The birds are totally penned in, in very confined cages. I'd say it's more a bird prison than a sanctuary....More

What a wonderful learning experience. The gentleman who runs the place and takes care of all the parrots really cares about teaching children about the reality of owning a parrot. He speaks to them and not the adults. Highly recommended.

It is heartwarming to see Ray the owner so compassionate about taking care of rescued parrots. People buy parrots and realize that they scream which results in them being returned. This place is wonderful for families and educational outings. Parrots are noisy by nature I...More
