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.

Not much too it. There are some birds...which you need binoculars to see. It's "O.K." but, I wouldn't count it worth going. However we did see a MASSIVE iguana. That was fun.

The Booby Pond is a large lake not too far from the airport. The main attractions are the Red-Footed Boobies and Frigate Birds, and there are plenty of them nesting. Many other animals, mainly birds and reptiles, live in the fringing vegetation. The Trust House has free binoculars on its veranda and balcony, decent displays on the geology and natural... More

This is a really cool nature area and if you can catch the docent there, she's got great information about the Nature Reserve and Little Cayman in general. And she has good homemade ice cream! :-)

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.

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.
