Must be Birds on the Brain...

We then toured the non-releasable bird houses. It was owl-mazing! There were so many really neat birds such as the fastest bird, the Peregrine Falcon. Or a Red Tailed Hawk with melanin deprivation.  

Once again we went out to go to Tamarack Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. It was another amazing trip as we went there. When we walked in we had a great presentation of the numerous amount of educational birds that we learned were non-releasable due to previous injuries.

We learned that possession of any part of a endangered bird by the general public is ill-eagle. This is because this would potentially suggest poaching. It wasn't emusing as the splash zone was activated as all of the birds taken out decided to relieve themselves while being taken out.

They sparrowed no expense in making the experience great as they were previously scheduled to do a simple operation on a Red-Shouldered Hawk. They did a easy quick procedure to inject its antibiotics and feed it its breakfast. Overall it was a great time and super fun!
