We weren't sure what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. The 'pelican sanctuary', as I call it, easily had 50+ birds in it, including Sandhill cranes. We spent what seemed like hours just watching each other. These majestic birds are amazing and they appear to be quite content in their environment. We have visited several times.
There are many birds to see. The volunteer guides obviously love what they do and are happy to share information about the birds and about the wildlife center. The birds are well cared for and each one has its own story to tell. Its a perfect location , so a walk in the park or just sit by the river... 更多

We stumbled upon the nice little bird reserve and our son loved learning firsthand about these beautiful birds. A nice woman talked to us for at least 10 minutes about the different birds and kept our inquisitive son very happy. We were happy that we stopped to experience this.
