Birds Of Prey


My youngest got to choose our latest family outing.  She chose to go the Birds of Prey center here in Boise.  We packed a picnic lunch and headed over to check it out.


Harris's Hawk

Kestrel Falcon

They have shows throughout the day where they introduce various birds and let you see them up close.  My goodness they are beautiful creatures. 


Our center is best known for our work with the California condors.  Our success in saving these magnificent birds from extinction is world renown.

Can you believe these were almost made extinct in 1985
because people were just shooting them for sport?

While they aren't the prettiest birds I can't help but be in awe of their magnificence, nonetheless.  They certainly don't seem to mind posing for pictures and showing off a bit.



They have picnic areas and they encourage people to come, take their time and really enjoy the center.  I found it very pretty and quite peaceful.  They have a couple walking trails too.

Bateleur Eagle - Gorgeous!

We hope to go back in October and take some friends when they have the birds flying out in the open.  I think that will be really something.
