Nancy Forrester's Secret Garden Reviews
Nancy has a world of knowledge, and really cares about her parrots. She takes the time to explain the different personalities each bird has. We got to enjoy the up close and personal talents of Mr. Pe... more »
Nancy & Stephen that run the place are very committed to parrot rescue. They know a lot about parrots as well as the 22 they have there. It could take 1-2 hrs, depending on your interest level. more »
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.
