This small sanctuary tucked between towering condos on Indian Shores Beach does good work rescuing injured shorebirds and providing a home for those who cannot return to the wild. It's free, but asks for donations. It's worth a visit for the chance to see a...More

It's gone a bit "upscale" since I first visited in the disco era. That doesn't mean they're serving foie gras though. It's less smelly, and there's more variety. Bring the kids so they can see different types of pelicans, owls, hawks, and shore birds.

It's not a place with a lot of frills, but it is a nice place to visit. It's a very well-run rescue with lots of birds to see. A low-cost fun way to sepnd an afternoon

It is a small bird sanctuary that has a lot of rescued birds. There are also a lot of wild birds that nest in the trees in the sanctuary...so there are lots of birds to look at. It is free access and free parking.

This place rescues, feeds and gives sanctuary to displaced or injured birds in the area and helps them return to the wild. You can stroll on the Gulf beach when you walk through, before going back.

Never seen wild birds mostly not caged so close. Some are in enclosed areas but most were walking and flying around. You can visit from the beach or the road. Free entrance and parking, but leave a donation

Would be a bit of a long walk. Take the trolley that runs all day long, or nice long walk on the beach. Easy access from the beach. Well worth the visit!
