The bird sanctuary was very cool to see, it is set off all by itself so it's really nice. They have great trails to walk on and relax.

We hiked the trails here, some were challengingly but worth the effort. We didn't see many birds, but enjoyed ourselves nonetheless. A nice alternative to the cliff walk when the crowds are dense there.
