these birds are talented! Super friendly staff explains the birds background and shows us the talent they have. One lays on his back in your hand, the others talk. We must have spent 30 minutes here with the birds and got to take some of our own pictures. My daughters favorite was Peanut the green amazon. Thanks!!

We love the birds, and would happily tip well to hang out and get a picture - but this guy is just about the least approachable person we've met in Hawaii. As my mother-in-law would say, 'He has all the personality of a chapped @ss *donkey*' Sorry birds, but we wouldn't give your owner 2 cents with that attitude...

Well worth the stop to get pictures of the kids with the birds. Great gift for grandparents! Reasonably priced and got the pictures the next day as promised. The fellow that owns the birds gave us great information about the birds which our grandkids were most interested in.

I had planned to see the bird stand but couldn't figure out where it was. One night we were walking Front St and literally stumbled upon it. We were apprehensive but we went ahead and took the photos! They turned out awesome! One of the birds were a bit heavy but I made it through! We had our pictures by... More

AFTER the photo was taken, we were told to come back the next day after 5:00pm to pick it up. Seriously, in 2014? We told them we couldn't come the next day but could come the day after. When we came to the same spot later, they weren't there. They had also told us that day that it would be... More

I stopped here during the day with my sister, who was very hesitant about the birds, but after seeing how gentle they actually were, we got a great photo to take back home to the states. There are some bad reviews on here about the treatment of the birds, which I didn't see at all. If one who writes their... More

He had about 5 birds and no photos. He didn't even ask as if he cared if we were there. Don't know why he had a sign with no photos. Guess he wanted you to buy his photos at a tourist price.

We had to stop here and get a photo done with our son. At first we weren't sure if he would be afraid to hold the birds as he is only 4, but the bird handler was great with him. We ended up with some great shots and our son is STILL talking about peanut (the little one). When we... More

As soon as you see them approach the guy at the camera and ask for appointment (he can get busy sometimes!!) Funny and a good conversational picture for back at home

The bird guy, the bird stand, whatever. I've been going to Maui for years and I am so jealous of this guy I don't know if I can be impartial. I want his job! and he does it great. Okay, this is a guy with 4-5 birds, I'd try to spell them but you those beautiful birds with crowns and... More
