Owner description: A protective sanctuary for several species of exotic birds.
Reviewed 24 January 2014

This is a small area with exotic birds and a fish pond. The people who work here are very friendly and the birds are amazing. The cost of $5 for adults and $2 for kids was very reasonable. Some of the birds talk, others are just filled with personality. It is a place to linger and just enjoy the birds. If you are interested, the staff will let you hold the birds. We had such a nice time and fell in love with the golden conyor baby. I would recommend this place. Glad to support such a wonderful place.

San Diego is full of activities that can quickly add up. We had a few hours to spend focused on our girls' entertainment and I happened upon this little place while searching around online. We had a fantastic time, a memorable experience, and felt good about the fact that we spent less than $20. They had more birds on perches than cages so we had lots of hands-on time. Our girls (7 & 9) were a little nervous but really enjoyed feeding the birds. Definitely a wonderful little place.

We visited our friends in Del Mar and had some time to kill so stopped by. It's an interesting place with some beautiful birds. It is relatively inexpensive ($5 adults, $2 kids) and you can get up close to and interact with a variety of tropical birds. It's a small area with about 20 birds. You can see everything in a matter of minutes. We paid $0.50 to feed the birds, which added some interest. We were probably there a total of 20 - 30 minutes.

This is a very small outdoor bird sanctuary where you can see dedicated volunteers interacting with the birds. the birds are on perches so you can get very close to them since they aren't in cages. You can buy some food to feed the birds and it's interesting to see how they choose which piece of fruit or vegetable they want and how they hold it while eating. Some of the volunteers are very knowledgable which makes the visit even more enjoyable.
