Owls, eagles, hawks, vultures, falcons…..The Raptor Center cares for injured raptors of all kinds, and twice a year they have a public event (see the website for locations and dates) where rehabilitated birds are released. Some birds however cannot be sent back to the wild; these are the ones you can visit at the Raptor Center. It is really a marvellous opportunity to get 'up close and personal' with some truly beautiful creatures. When I'm in Minneapolis area (usually twice a year for many years) I almost always stop by to visit. Some of the bird 'ambassadors' like Casper and Nero have been living here for many years, and feel like old friends. Great for all ages. Guides to take visitors through the mews are informative and ready to answer questions of all kinds - this is not just for birders, but everyone. Parking on the street outside the building or in a lot just across the street. A five minute drive from some wonderful shops and restaurants on Como Avenue (I recommend the Colossal Cafe or The Finnish Bistro, but there are others), so you can have a great lunch and a bit of shopping after visiting the birds.
