The Center for Birds of Prey

Zerve Seller: BirdsofPrey

The Center for Birds of Prey offers visitors a unique insight into the lives and impressive adaptations of nearly 50 species of birds of prey including eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, kites and vultures.
Wild birds are among the world's most illuminating sentinel species. Birds are numerous, conspicuous, diverse, widespread and particularly sensitive to environmental changes. The ecological status of wild birds directly reflects the condition of the ecosystem and biodiversity as a whole. Environmental issues that impact wild bird populations often have potential human health implications as well.
Whether you are a birder, a photographer or simply want to spend the day outdoors, we invite you to explore the natural history of birds of prey through guided walking tours, personalized environmental education programs and striking free-flight demonstrations.
All proceeds from your admission go to support the Avian Conservation Center, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

Program was excellent as conducted; however, since bird programs/demonstrations are not uncommon, a limited tour of the medical facility would make it more unique and educational. As a former wildlife rehabilitator, I understand that stress on the animals is a factor. It could be a special tour to minimize facility impact and a one-way window could be used to view selected animals being treated without stressing the animals. Information on how to become a rehabilitator or otherwise encourage/motivate people to help with problems adverse to critical bird needs would be good.
The Center for Birds of Prey responded:
Thank you for your review. We do appreciate your time and candid opinion.

Avian Medical Clinic tours are held a few times each year. Typically, they are offered first to our members as a member benefit and they usually fill up immediately.

You are correct about the effect of stress on our patients, which is why we only do these special behind-the-scenes tours occasionally and also why we limit the participation to 20 individuals or less.

A really wonderful experience. The staff and volunteers were awesome and really show their passion in what they do at the center. We felt very welcome from the minute we stepped onto the grounds. We learned a lot about the birds and their importance in the ecosystem. The rehabilitation service they do there is so important and the information we received about our role with injured birds was awesome and opened our eyes to that world.

Thank you for a great day and a wonderful experience.
