We stopped at this place on a total lark while looking for a letterbox. It totally made our trip, and is not to be missed. Access to the birds is *very* up close and personal. Added bonus: the pelicans that just hang around in hopes of scoring some fish. We have pictures of us literally 18" away from a wild pelican. Lots of other neat birds too, including a red tail hawk, some owls, and of course, every coastal bird on the gulf side of Florida. This place was way better than we expected, and so inspired us to drop money in their donation can. Great things to see, and great staff too.
