We visited our local raptor center. They rehabilitate many birds (more than 400 last year) and the ones they can't release in the wild are used for education.


It is a lot easier to figure out which raptor is which if there is a sign right next to them and they sit still to let one admire them.


We saw a demonstration about raptors and learned that 'birds of prey' is not a full description of raptors, since robins eat worms and woodpeckers eat insects but they are not raptors.


This family visit is very much like a whirlwind, we do tons of stuff every day and are having a blast.
