This place can be made into a great bird sanctuary with a bit of care and upkeep. It has quite a variety of birds but some of them are not free and happy as they tend to pluck off their own feathers in depression.

Best go here for lunch before or after a visit to lake chivero. Really chilled atmosphere and there's friendly staff, one of whom is a Man U supporter (shame) and has great sense of humour. Food was nothing special but okay.
