This was a wonderful experience for my family. Heads up...we arrived at 10am and I had to call the number on the sign for them to open the gate....No biggie, though! We had a great time viewing all of the resident feathered friends. You could really see them up close and read about them in the guide book provided. If... More

We had great expectations for this attraction, however after paying $5.00 each we were disappointed with the exhibits. Not too many birds on display and the few that normally are visible close up were not put out because they were "short staffed" on Sunday when we visited. The only person we saw there knew very little about the birds or... More

We only spent about 45 min there but loved it! It was great for my husband to practice his photography with the birds! It started a great conversation with our son about rehabitation vs letting nature take it's course without human interaction. Sweet place! Mosquitos were bad so wear spray!

When we babysit our 4 little grandkids for a weekend or longer we are always looking for some new adventure to take them on. We have lived in Orlando most of our lives and, of course, had read in the newspaper from time to time about various injured birds being taken to this Audubon-run facility in nearby Maitland for rehabilitation....

This is a good place for a low key visit with the kids or grandkids to learn about Florida Birds of Prey. Here the public is educated about the steps of rehabilitation for any injured Bird of Prey brought to this facility Some of the injured birds are able to be released back into the wild, but others are permanently...

Watching animals is much better than worshipping a fabled fictional mouse. Mickey might even be eaten there. Well, I grew up in Maitland and Audubon existed in the 40s and survived with little support, just dedicated people. Nature is the real deal, folks.

Can't believe we've lived in this area for years and had no idea such a great place was right around the corner. Before you leave the Disney area know this. It's small, took us about 45 minutes to go through the park and we took our time. That being said, It was a great experience. We saw about 20 different... More

Get out of the theme park crowd and see what the outdoors has to offer. The center is run by big hearts, a group of volunteers who care and rehabilitate these birds. We have visited several times, and my children love it. The volunteers are all very friendly and offer a plethora of information. You get real close to these... More

A great place to take the kids! Real birds not robots like at Disney. We live in the area and bring guests there. They love it. Just today while walking some man stopped me and asked where it was...he was taking an injured hawk he found there. They care for injured birds.

We're sure it's been said before, but this is a true hidden gem for the Central Florida area. It truly makes me proud to have this facility in my town. These birds are well taken care of, clean enclosures, staff & volunteers truly care about this place. Love the fact that the guidebook you are given to use has the... More
