Watch more than 80 species of migratory birds from the Bubali watch tower, overlooking their roosting and breeding area.

The observation tower allows birdwatchers to get a truly birds'-eye view. Migratory birds, looking for lush vegetation in which to nest, find an oasis within the Bubali Bird Sanctuary.

The nearby water treatment facility empties into two interconnected man-made bird ponds. Birds that inhabit the sanctuary include herons, egrets, gulls, skimmers, coots, ducks and more.

Located within walking distance of the Palm Beach resorts, the Bubali Bird Sanctuary offers some unique bird-watching opportunities. You can’t miss it, as it is located just in front of the historical Old Dutch Windmill. Make sure to bring your camera, as many of these birds will randomly fly by the observation tower giving a little show. This is a great place to bring kids for a unique and possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be so close to the untamed.
