    Default Suncoast Bird Sanctuary

    My dad came down for a visit and we took him to the bird sanctuary in Redington Beach (florida). It is an interesting place to visit. They say injured birds sometimes walk right up to to sanctuary when injured or just hungry. The funniest sight, was to see healthy birds walking around the enclosures trying to join the ones in the cages recuperating.
    This will take several posts to finish...
