“Appeared closed and derilict. Not worth a visit.”

Reviewed 8 February 2018

Apparently the owners have died.
No one has taken it on. No feeders.
Rather overgrown and neglected.
You will see just as many birds in the forest.

Like many things in Tobago this appeared to be deserted and derelict. Not far from Le Grand Courlan Hotel we walked to this bird sanctuary.
The place was run down completely and over grown but the birds are still obviously fed by someone as the dispensers had sugar solution in them and there was a scattering of seed. It is a steep climb to the hut at the top, which has not been used for a very long time but the birds we were lucky enough to see were beautiful. Such a shame. The walk both up and down to the sanctuary is very peaceful.

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.
