A unique attraction in Tacurong City, this site was formerly a black pepper plantation. Today, this 2.5-hectare land is home to over 20,000 wild migratory birds such as cattle egret, black-crowned night heron, great egret, and rufous night-heron. For bird watchers, the place is a must-visit due to the sheer number of birds living here. The land belongs to the family of Rey Malena, who in the mid-nineties, spotted four egrets in their peppercorn farm. The birds found the place peaceful and eventually sought refuge in the area. More birds started coming to their farm, until it became more of a bird sanctuary than a place to grow peppercorns. On 2002, the city government declared Baras Bird Sanctuary an ecotourism destination. Today, bird watchers from all over the world visit the province to participate in the Tacurong Bird Festival, the first and only bird watching festival in South Central Mindanao.
