Cool experience
Jul 2021
So cool! We were able to see so many birds and turtles here. It was fascinating to just watch them flying around and interacting with their environment. The Roseate Spoonbills were my personal favorite with their beautiful pink wings. If you do the Jungle Gardens tour, please visit Bird City. You will not be disappointed!

One Small Part of a Great Location
Mar 2020
Bird City is only a small part of the Avery Island Jungle Gardens. Based on the signage and presentation I was expecting this area to the highlight of my trip. However there were several other areas of the Jungle Park that I really enjoyed a lot more. Definitely worth seeing but doesn't warrant much more than 15 mins.

Very interesting story about how this became Bird City and a connection to India. Well worth the stop while on the Jungle Tour.

Birds, birds and more birds!
Feb 2020
E.A. McIlhenny--also known as Monsieur Ned--built his first aviary here at this site over 100 years ago. Today it is home to thousands of egrets, herons,other water birds, and other wildlife.

Colony of Egrets
May 2019
I had been here in the past and this time with my husband who had never visited. We both were fascinated. There were adults and many chicks. The alligators were swimming below the platforms waiting for their next meal to fall.

Oops...no birds

September must be a bad time to see birds. Hopefully this is better at other times of the year. Still lots of other things to see.

This is part of the Jungle Gardens Tour at Tabasco

They have a number of piers for the birds to nest. However, the nubmer of birds was low perhaps due to the time of year.

Natural setting with plenty of biting bugs
Jun 2019
This location is beautiful and worth taking a look at. We didn't have bug spray and the skeeters were out in droves. Had just enough time to take a picture and run. Very memorable though.

Lots of birds
Aug 2018 • Family
You can see the birds on the jungle gardens tour- walk down the hill and climb steps to the observation area- we saw lots of birds and at least 10 alligators-- you can also drive a little bit past the observation area- and see them without walking down and then back up the hill.
