About Free Flight Exotic Bird Sanctuary

Free Flight is a sanctuary for exotic companion birds that provides a special and unique environment to raise community awareness and to encourage positive interaction with these birds.
Their goals are to re-socialize and rehome companion parrots and to educate the public about their complex mental, physical and emotional needs. They offer permanent sanctuary or re-homing depending upon what is in the best interest of each bird.

While you’re in the area, make sure to hike the River Path Del Mar Phase II

Personal Experience

I visited Free Flight on a whim one day when I was in the area.  What a cool hidden gem that I had no clue existed!  It is a stone’s throw away from the Del Mar Fair, which I have been visiting since I was in my mom’s tummy!  I was pretty floored to learn this sanctuary was so close by.

The lady that showed me around was very helpful and it is obvious how much the workers care about the birds. A lot of the birds have had traumatizing lives and this place is there to help them feel safe and loved.

    Dear Tiffani Kjeldergaard from Winged Wonders Exotic Bird Sanctuary: I already erased your comment several weeks ago and I see you are back on here with the same message. You are clearly just out to slander your competitor, Exotic Bird Sanctuary. I am wondering if your business is run by an actual adult or are you a teenager? It is extremely unprofessional of you. I will be shortly removing your comment AGAIN and I ask of you to please keep your rivalry off my website. Thank you.

    Yay! I appreciate you adding this spot to the list! I volunteer here and it is amazing to know that you and others appreciate it! These are all great birds and each have part of my heart. They need love and support, just as anyone needing a second chance!

    A direct quote from Tiffani Kjeldergaard’s bird website – “In 2008 Tiffani was arrested for assault”…
