If you love birds,especially raptors, well this certainly the place for you. It is a small center with a variety of different species who have been kept there due to circumstances in which they cannot be released to the wild, and they are gorgeous, and cute. There is also a small deck to view onto the marshlands where you can... More

The Center is located on some very prime real estate. There is a lake with a gazebo and the birds are in enclosures that make you think you are in a forest. You want to take a tour because it is very educational and fun. Course the Eagles catch everyone's attention. What incredible birds of prety they are. The Center... More

If you're interested in raptors, this is the place to visit when you're in Florida. There is a variety of birds of prey to observe, and lots of interesting information to read along your walk by a scenic lake/wetland. The staff member who welcomed us was very warm and informative. I was happy to see the great work they do... More

Get away from the theme parks and get a real inside look at how Audubon manages exotic animals and how they reintroduce them into the wild.

This is an excellent facility for injured or any birds of prey that cannot make it in the wild. Every effort is made to help the bird recover so that the birds can return to the wild. For birds that cannot return to their natural habitat the center becomes their home. Care is provided by trained staff and volunteers using... More

Friendly and informative staff. Birds are very well cared for. Only birds that are NOT able to be released back into the wild are on exhibit. Birds that are being cared for with the intent of being released are not on exhibit so as not to habituate them to people. Easy walking trails outside - no steep grades. Interesting videos... More

The center is well planned and presented. The birds have decent size enclosures with shade and fauna. It is all outdoors - so plan for the weather. The majority of the space is shaded. There is a nice pavilion, so you could bring a picnic if you wanted. Keep in mind that it is a working facility - so the... More

I really enjoyed the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey. Plan on about an hour commitment, mostly outdoors but with plenty of shade. My 13-year old loved this place, and I saw many other children ages 4-12 who were having lots of fun there during our visit. While we were there, a good Samaritan brought an injured hawk in for...

This is a unique place that cares for injured birds of prey. Volunteers and workers are very knowledgeable about the birds and are eager to educate you. Every year they have a baby shower, where you can donate items needed for the birds care, food, paper towels, etc and in return you can receive a free pass for the center.
