The cages look like a row of prison cells, all lined-up in a row. And forget about ever visiting your bird once you have left it with them. You may never see your bird again because they SELL these birds. I have first hand knowledge. A couple brought their cookatoo to the sanctuary because the woman's new husband didn't get along with her bird. Two weeks later they came back to retrieve the bird because the woman couldn't stop crying for her baby, and the husband gave in. The bird was gone! It had been sold. And to make matters worse, Patricia denied ever meeting these people or taking-in their bird. The woman was devastated! Patricia regularly sells these birds. She'll point to a bird and say, "That one is my steak dinner tonight." Beware of this place.

Response from patrician273, Owner at Florida Exotic Bird Sanctuary
Responded Nov 15, 2019
This is complete nonsense. A troll. Nothing of this sort ever happened. We have a reputation of over 20 years of a open door policy to all owners. We have hard files with every single bird and an a extensive database. So who ever wrote this is doing so in malase. We offer anyone to come tour and see that what this person said is false, please do. Troll troll troll. Seriously!

This is not really a place to go to see birds like you would in a zoo. Rather it is a place that take in birds that people can no longer take care of, mostly because the owners have become too old, or that the owners have died. That's what people may not understand; If you retire at age 65 and decide to buy a parrot, you have to remember some birds live 25 to 30 years. all in all, these birds have a great place to love and are cared for. You Can Not buy any of them, and I don't think you can board your bird there.

Most sanctuaries for Exotic Birds leave alot to be desired....Although I havent visited this place by looking a pics seems to be a better place....than most , I have years of raising and hatching exotics although retired I have found most people do not feed the proper diets as each species does require various foods in their diets....I have worked with zoos , raised my own birds for zoos from conures to macaws from Hyacinths to Palm Cockatoos ....even raised parrots for TV shows and commercials....my resume is endless when it comes to parrots....I will make a visit some day to this facilty and hopefully I wont be disappointed ..The average person going to these sanctuaries knows nothing about birds and can be blinded by their beauty , instead of someone like myself can see the enitre picture from Cleanliness to diets to conditions of each bird. Overall the pics look great, I'm glad and hope this facility is doing most everything right including bird toys for the birds to amuse themselves ....as well as helping to file their beaks and toenails with proper items in the cages....Hope its all good and these birds are ell taken care of~ I will come back to re rate this place for now Im middle of the road....cant rate a 5 yet!

What a wonderful find ! First you need to call ahead to set up a time. Karen was super about getting us a time ! We had our grand daughter and the 3 of us met her at 10:30 AM. She gave us a tour of over 600 exotic birds knowing most of their names and little tricks and sayings they love to do. The birds are well taken care of, very clean aviares, the birds are grouped together by type. These birds have mostly outlived their owners as they can live between 45-150 years old ! We really enjoyed it ! There is no cost for this ,but donations are accepted and all the money goes to a great cause.as you will see first hand !

This is a wonderful place to have. As these poor souls would be lost without it. Plus you can't learn enough about these amazing sweet creatures. Everyone with thier own personality. I wanted to being them all home. They have one that even sings a song "old McDonald had a farm' lol. So many different species. It's a heart warming and heart breaker alike. So many from broken homes makes you feel broken hearted. But also so happy a wonderful place with wonderful people that take the. In love them feed them etc. Unfortunately this place runs on donations alone. Please call make a appointment for a tour and make a donation at the end if you feel the way I did. It's a wonderful be place. With so many different types of parrots,chickens etc.
