Great sanctuary for wild birds hurt or imprinted on humans. Great staff and funny orange cat who has been tamed by the chickens!!! He loves to sit on your lap when you sit on one of the benches! Great place for a picnic and to feed the small birds in the enclosed aviary. Close up of bald eagles, different owls... More

We had nice time here. It doesn't take too long to go through the exhibits, but the birds seem calm and well cared for in clean enclosures with natural plants growing inside. The chicken greeter in the office made us laugh, and the lazy cat outside expressed everyone's desire to just take it easy on a warm afternoon. The birds... More

This place is EXCELLENT for nature lovers! My family stopped here while passing through the area since my son is a bird enthusiast we knew we had to stop, I'm so glad we did. First of all, the staff was wonderful! They went above and beyond when they found out my son loves birds. They made him feel right at... More

Viewing the birds took about 15 minutes. We spent about 45 minutes on the trails--the trails are nice (but buggy). Wear bug spray and avoid flip flops--there are some muddy areas. While hiking we saw a deer and her fawns which the kids thought was awesome.

The bird sanctuary has a variety of birds that have been injured and nursed back to health or rescued. There are several large birds in separate cages, including owls, vultures and eagles. You can purchase small cups of bird feed and go into a large cage that has many free flying small birds. There are a few blue jays that... More

My parents are birders, although they don't make very long lists now that they moved to a senior center out of state. When they came out to visit, we took them to the Ohio Bird Sanctuary and they really enjoyed it. One major criticism- I was driving or they never would have found the place. The road signs are very... More

I looked this up before our arrival in Ohio and was not disappointed. We brought along for company our family from Ohio and they hadn't heard of this place at all, but loved the experience as much as us! Very accommodating and friendly staff. We got to see up close a huge Eagle and many other birds , including some... More

Good family place to see many different kinds of birds that they save. These are birds, owls, etc. that have been injured that they nurse back to health. They also have a summer camp for kids to learn more about the birds as well as the wilderness & plants. Good place to visit.

I made special plans to take my partner to the sanctuary to meet Montey, the barn owl. It was wonderful! The staff was great, the facility was well cared for, and the birds were all amazing! This is a great trip for the family, or in our case a couple.
