This is a must see when kids or nature lovers are at my home. During good weather there are sessions outside with raptors flying from one person to another receiving food. This weekend was cold, so the session was inside. Saw a couple of owls and learned a lot about the owls in North America. There are 18 different owls in North America!
You can see if there are any recovering birds and raptors in the ICU by looking through a window. They have a recovering songbird gazebo. The raptors on display are part of their education and demo center. They are permanent residents as they have injuries or malformations that would make them unsuccessful in the wild. VINS receives birds from other centers in other parts of the country. They also have raptors in rehab for future release once they are ready to be successful back in the wild.
Kids love this place!!!
