  • Nancy is incredibly knowledgeable about all things birds! She gave a personal story about each bird that she has and demonstrated their talents and tricks. The entry fee is $10 per person and this is completely worth it for the interesting tidbits of knowledge you gain. I thought we would be able to interact with the birds and take pictures (but not now after realizing this is a rescue and not a photo opportunity), however it was cool to see them eat and do tricks!
  • Nancy's was a hidden gem that we thankfully found in Key West. She was eager to teach us about her birds and how she's been helping them for over 30 years. Worth checking out if you like nature, birds, and a genuinely unique experience. Stop by if you're around.
