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.

An extremely interesting experience for a non-birder. The staff was very welcoming and did a great job shepherding our group around the spacious grounds. Our tour was listed as a two hour event but we were still enjoying exhibits and briefings after two and a half hours. It is a great place to picnic as part of the visit. Be aware that the raptors are not flown in demonstrations if the weather is bad - too windy for example. And be prepared for very hot and humid weather during the summer. And bring insect repellant.

The introductory tour and the flight demonstrations are given by enthusiastic and well-versed young people. The birds are beautiful, the center is easy to find and everyone involved is welcoming. It's an excellent half-day outing.

This is my second visit to the Center for Birds of Prey and I highly recommend it, though very young children may find the tour a little boring I bet they will love to see the bird show. The tour is both informative and entertaining, and the show is excellent. They have designed the show to try and demonstrate the natural behaviors that the various species of birds use in the wild. Really great.

It was a real treat to see so many species of raptors. The "shows" were great, because they showed the birds abilities in flight, as well as seeing them up close as they flew right over our heads. It's a beautiful property. We also enjoyed viewing the rookerie across the lake. Also, we spotted a painted bunting on a bird feeder, as well as a female Anhinga sitting on some reeds/cattails in the shallows of the lake with her wings spread out. All in all, a fantastic birding day!!
