    While visiting Horseshoe Bay on the island we took a short beach walk to find a trailer set up on the beach, looked like it had been there a long time. The next day we went back to find a group of people standing around this area watching as birds dove down to the ground and landed on and around a mysterious man, who we later found out was the Bird Man!
    He trained the birds and they were pretty much his pets. He talked to a lot of people and if you were lucky you got invited to dinner. He apparently is friendly with austrialian tv personalities that come and visit him. And some politians I think, couldn't hear all that well through his thick accent. Check him out...though this could be considered a tourist trap.
