For 16 years, our tradition on every trip to Maui is a bird picture! The birds are beautiful, tame and well cared for. One of the handler even got hit by a car protecting a bird. Great, great pics every time I've gone! Thanks!

We love birds so when we read about this attraction on Trip Advisor, I knew I had to take the kids. We got there too early- he doesn't arrive with the birds until noonish and stays until 9 p.m. There are two or three different 'shifts' so the photographers/handlers and birds rotate throughout the day (thank you for that!!).

After many visits to Maui, we finally had our family picture taken by Brian the Bird Man in 2008, then another in 2011, then a church group in 2012. My wife and I recently visited Maui again and returned in February 2014 with our 4th picture, but just the two of us. We have now made it a family tradition.... More

Great photo opportunity. Well trained birds. Owner rescued one of the birds from an abusive situation. They worked extremely well with children. They are very passionate about their birds and satisfying their customers! Highlight for the kids.

Since I am a parrot owner myself (11 birds) I was really looking forward to visiting this guy and his birds and getting my photos taken. I was almost more interested in just seeing the whole setup and talking with the guy about the birds. There were about 3 different guys running different times of the day, and they ROTATE... More

We have visited Lahina five times in the last twenty + years and never miss an opportunity to have our picture taken with the birds. The birds are well behaved and adorable. We were a little apprehensive the first time with the bird on the head, but it is now a tradition that we look forward to on our visits.

We got a couple family shots done with the birds here and have an awesome unique keepsake we can hang on the wall. The birds were very happy and looked to be very well cared for. The owner of the birds looked like an old hippie surfer, but after talking with him don't let his looks fool you, he runs... More

This bird man sets up on Front street and is hard to miss. He has a variety of birds on stands and will arrange your family and place the birds accordingly. The prices are reasonable and you come back and pick up your pictures the next afternoon. He will also mail them to you if needed. We actually bought the... More

We come to Maui yearly, and it's a tradition of ours to take the photos with the birds, we always get the CD with the photos shipped to us, it's worth the extra cost. They do a good job of choosing a good photo to print and i'm always very happy with what we get. Is it cheap? No. But... More

I stopped today and spoke to the owner of these beautiful birds and he absolutely LOVES these animals. Many were rescued from horrible lives in cages, they absolutely adore him and he has fans on them, shade, and more so he obviously cares about them. I do animal rescue so I can see that the birds are in great shape,... More
