BIRDS!!

Excellent area for viewing birds. Smells like bird poop, but duh, there are birds everywhere. Stop at the information center, there are nice telescopes there for viewing.

We went to the pond almost every evening to watch the boobys and frigates. The aerial antics are amazing and of course the cherry-red feet are tremendous to see. You don't realize until you use the telescopes (or binos) just how many birds are all around. Wonderful place that deserves to be protected.

Haunting images of really freaky big birds. they look like pterodactyls. Can watch through coin op mounted binoculars.

We came upon this location on our bikes. The folks inside are volunteers that can give you all kinds of information about the nature that can be found on the island. I learned a great deal in a short time about the birds. If you enjoy nature and especially if you like birds you need to stop by. The Trust... More

The Trust House is built right at the booby pond where you can watch the birds through telescopes if desired, and especially around 4 PM when the birds come in after a day of gathering food. Go an hour early to shop for the most unique gifts. I bought a hobo purse made of vintage saris, hand quilted and with... More

The Nature Reserve is run by volunteers. They were very informative on the Boobys and Frigates that were nesting there. The gift shop offered good prices on t-shirts and they also had a library with free books. Glad we stopped by and checked it out.

The local volunteer in there was passionate about his charges - Red Footed Boobies, Frigate Birds and Iguanas - it made my visit a joy.

What makes this place better than average is the sheer number of boobies, frigate birds, and others. You really need binoculars though because the nesting areas are mainly on the side of the pond away from the road. Without binoculars you will hear far more of the raucous bird cries but see them only from afar except for infrequent fly-overs.... More

We went in the summer, so there were not too many birds and the pond was mostly dried up. If you have seen one 'dry hole' you have seen them all.

The Second Floor Deck is always open, even if the Visitors Center has very limited hours. From there you can see a half dozen bird species.
