I have visited several times and as recently as yesterday. We also for the first time visited the Aviary Hospital and public education exhibit area in the front building 1.5 miles south of the Rehabilitation Center. My wife and I always make a point of speaking with the volunteers like Ken who helped with the carpentry on many of the enclosures and volunteers four hours per day. The place is constantly upgraded. Mrs. Quinn, the original bird lady and founder, would be very proud of what this facility is currently doing for the local avian wildlife.

This is a top-notch organization; well-run by dedicated and passionate people. The improvements that have been made in the last couple of years are amazing! Every time I go I am so impressed by the progress that is being made and I learn something new about our local birds. I am so glad that we have a center like this in our community to help teach our kids to be good stewards of the environment.

BIRDS! The Florida Keys Wild Bird Center is a wonderful rescue organization here in the Upper Keys. On call for "birdgencies", they respond to any and all bird rescues. Their sanctuary is well run and offers visitors a chance for a close encounter with many of our local bird species. You can even "adopt" a bird!

I have LOVED this place for years. The work that is done is amazing. I simply don't understand how they can do the work that they do in such a challenging environment.

This wild bird hospital and sanctuary made it through a challenging transition after the death of the "Bird Lady". The community leaders really stepped up and so did the locals. Worthy!
