“Well, there is a light on but nothing much more!”

Reviewed 17 December 2017

As others have reported, this place has the feel of the abandoned InGen facility in the second Jurassic Park film. There was a light on but the whole place is covered in very slippery mould and clearly deserted. NONETHELESS, we got some good photos of a copper-rumped bee-eater and saw a lot of rufous-vented chachalacas at very close quarters (what strange birds!).

Worth a visit up the 100m road but don’t expect much and do spray yourself first as it is a mozzie paradise.

We went at 4pm for the feeding of the birds but no one turned up. Several birds came very close to us mournfully expecting food but sadly we had none to give so by 5 pm they retreated back to the trees. It's special place but obviously now much neglected. We left a donation. I do hope it keeps going.

As others have commented, this is a very run-down attraction but it gives you an opportunity to see various local birds up close if you turn-up at 4.00pm for feeding time. The approach lane is steep and unsurfaced but if you like watching birds it is worth the effort. The suggested donation is TT10 but my wife and I did not begrudge leaving TT50 in the box when we found that we had nothing smaller.

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 well kept. Nobody showed up at 4pm for the "feeding". We hung around a bit longer and then left. There is a suggested donation of TT$ 10 per person for bird-feed. This is not enforced, but please do put the money in in the designated box. Once you are there, you will end up giving atleast the donation- when you see the poor maintenance. There is no other entry fee as such.

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.
