The bird watch was ok we seen more white moths or butterflies ans ome birds. We did see the head of the alligator it is more of a walk and see what you can see. Some fishes in the water we were able to see and the musemum and the tower where you can stand out there and look. A nice place to observe the place and it costs a fee dollars and show a film as well. It is also across the way from LaQuinta.

Beautiful trails and birds. Go early in the morning or late in the evening to get the most from your trip.

A little disappointed, not enough birds, maybe I picked a bad time to go, right at noon. Oh, and it wasn't free

After visiting the turtle farm, my boyfriend was very excited to see the bird center. We felt like our $20 to enter was going towards the air conditioning bill than the actual conserving of the birds. We see more birds on a daily basis in Dallas than we saw here. I went inside to watch the film, but it never came on. My boyfriend climbed the whole tower and didn't see anything. Save your money for the turtle farm.

This facility is new. They had a short film that gave a great overview of the island. Several trails out over the water enabled you to view herons, ducks and other birds of the area.
