Today, BecBec and I took the boys to The Center for Birds of Prey. It was amazing! I would highly recommend visiting this place. We got there right in time for one of the flying demonstrations - a hawk, falcon and owl all showed their flying and hunting skills. It was so cool to see these birds up close and in action. Hughes slept through the demonstration but soon woke to check out the bald eagle and others. Banks just pointed and said his infamous "hot" - not really sure he means hot but he says it all the time for everything.
Bald Eagle - hit by a car and had foot and spine damage.
Quick photo op in front of one of the many hawk exhibits. Hughes couldn't stop saying "look, look". He was running ahead of us, so excited to show us the next bird. Banks brought up the rear exclaiming "hot, hot".
Check out this puff ball of an owl. I forgot his name, but he was my favorite owl.
Flying demonstration with hawk. It was interesting seeing how the hawk approaches his prey (fake albeit but nonetheless impressive).
Everyone had a great time - if you haven't been, you need to go. We finished up our visit with lunch at the Sewee Restaurant.
