We did this to kill some time before heading to airport and so glad we did! It’s a little outdoor area but the birds are so friendly and beautiful. You can tell the staff truly care for them and the birds adore them. Birds are funny saying things like hello, hi, what’s up, and my favorite “Valentina” which was the birds name. A cup of food is included for you to feed birds from. We spent about 30-min here. Only thing to know is no public bathrooms so go before you come.

Thanks Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary, in Del Mar, for a great tour, led by ex colleague and friend Larry Goodman! The volunteers obviously Love these birds! Great care is taken with each one of them. Senior Docent, Larry Goodman, lead our tour with the backgrounds, names and ages of each amazing and colorful bird. I highly recommend as an outing for friends and families looking for something different to do with the education necessary if interested in having a bird for a pet. Guests get to feed many of the birds, getting good close up looks and some docents hold the birds and interact. They even show some behaviors and talking. Great hour to spend and beautiful garden setting with flowers and a big koi pond as well.

A feel good event. Get up close with gorgeous, quirky exotic birds - macaws, amazons, cockatoos, parrots, conures and a crane. Perfect for a low energy, mentally stimulating experience. Lots of shade. No large, loud crowds. Birds can be noisy. You need to make reservations. There's no gift shop or snack bar (except for the birds).

I was visiting my mom, met friends in Del Mar for lunch and were looking for something else to do. After a search, found this lovely exotic bird sanctuary. Because of COVID, you have to make a reservation for your 20-minute tour and you can’t touch the birds.

Our docent was very knowledgeable about each of the 2 dozen or so gorgeous birds, who during the day are outside on perches. You can feed most of them, get them to talk to you and sometimes “dance” with you.

A fun, educational and unusual activity to do for 20 (we were there 40!) minutes.

Under current covid regulations you can't pick up the parrots, but this doesn't mean you can't have fun - or the parrots can't play you. Red and I played upside down peekaboo this week. I WON. Red had to go upside down and I got to stay right side up. I refuse to upload the photos of when I lost. Really, you can be the silliest thing with a parrot and they will enjoy your silliness - and you will enjoy their enjoyment. The only place I go where the welcome "HELLO!" starts from when I get out of the car.

This place is a find if you're looking for a short one-of-a-kind experience. It's the size of a backyard with dozens of parrots on perches for you to see. A few are in cages, but most are brought out to their own stands to see. We weren't allowed to touch them, but we were allowed to hold a snack dish on a stick to feed a few while our hands were protected. Our guide was very informative. We were there for 20-30 minutes, which was fine. You have to fill out a COVID survey ahead of your pre-scheduled appointment, which is a San Diego required inconvenience, not Free Flight's, and you currently have to wear a mask. My wife and daughter love birds, so when we were staying in San Diego, I created this short secret diversion experience along the way, and they really enjoyed it.

We were staying nearby and a visit to "Free Flight" was suggested. Fairly easy to find ... but not that easy to find a parking space. We thought the entry fee for us "Seniors" at 7 dollars was a bit expensive. Birds on display when we went were quite varied in terms of plumage but it was sad to see that some were suffering from distress signs ... pulled feathers etc.
Better suited to visits from children?

Dear Bob & Josie, We regret that you had difficulty parking immediately outside our facility. We always want to be approachable to our visitors and thank you for your feedback. We do want to clarify that as a non-profit, our admission fees of $7/adult and $3/child help us run our programs that support the sheltering, nurturing and resocializing of companion parrots for future adoption. But, a good majority of our flock are "seniors" too, living in forever retirement with us - and they are extremely costly to care for! All our birds came from a variety of backgrounds where they were well-loved, but their former owners faced challenges in keeping them. Parrots are large empaths and unfortunately in some of these instances, nutritional problems, stress in the home or family, inappropriate bonding and the like can lead to an addiction to self-mutilation habits (somewhat similar to a human chewing their fingernails). We appreciate your visit, and hope you will remember their personalities as beautifully as we think of them daily. Warmly, Free Flight

Free Flight was a great find on our trip. The birds are well cared for and the employees / volunteers are very knowledgeable. I've never been up close with birds and this was just all very exciting. I'd recommend to individuals, couples or families.

$7 adult admission ($3 per child) and another 50 cents for a cup of fresh fruit, veggies, and greens pays for an entertaining and educational experience.

Pickles, the military macaw, will eat everything you put within his reach.
Cookie, the yellow-naped Amazon, will respond to her name and possibly repeat, "Hi, Cookie." The princess crane, who is not a picky eater, will eat all the leftovers and will get the run of the place after hours. Red, the green wing macaw, will patiently pose for photos. Celebrity cockatoo Fred, one of three who starred on Baretta, just might make an appearance.
Those are just five of the thirty exotic birds currently living at Free Flight.

The volunteers are enthusiastic, helpful, and knowledgeable. It seemed like there was one for each family group.

There are no labels on the cages because the birds are moved around so that they experience new environments, but the volunteers will introduce you to all the inhabitants of Free Flight.

Birds who are stressed and pluck their feathers can be helped with a protective vest if they can tolerate the weight and keep their balance while wearing it.

lots of photo ops

Stopped here on our drive from San Diego to Anaheim. As bird owners, it was great to be able to interact with so many beautiful birds! They are well taken care of and it was a great place to stop!
