Stop by here on your trip to Little Cayman. You can see some unique birds that are unique to the islands. It’s a must stop in a day trip.

A nice place for a short visit to watch the local birds... the deck is open all the time... in side the building is a nice exhibit of the wildlife and habitat. There is no charge to enter they did have a small gift shop.

We stopped by three times. Relaxing atmosphere to watch the birds soar over the building. They have built-in binolulars so you can watch the birds in the surrounding trees. We actually found three Pelicans.

Simply beautiful, shear wall, white sand shutes, sand flats, great coral heads, fantastic soft coral, and varied tropical fish. Nothing like Bloody Bay Wall !

We went and watched the nesting birds from the free telescopic viewers from the first and second floors. It is a wealth of wildlife and should not be missed! The Museum was quite nice as well and the curator was super friendly.

Took my telephoto lens and hoped for the best. Even used my wide angle. Always wanted a photo of a male frigate bird on the wing for my collection and I got him. It's almost as if he came out of central casting to pose...More

Hundreds of boobys, fly and nest. The observation deck provides a great view of the birds. It is a little smelly but worth it

Little Cayman has no taxis so I rode a bicycle to the Booby Pond Nature Reserve in the afternoon after diving. The pond is not attractive to view - pond scum and some trash in it. The red footed boobies roost there at night so...More

I was there in August- maybe other months are better- but to me, this was little more than a swampy, stinky bird sanctuary. (If I was a bird, I'd move!)
