Wings of America Birds of Prey" show which is performed four times per day by the AEF. There are currently 18 bald eagles in the aviary with a couple of nesting pairs inside of the enclosure. It is quite a site to see all those white heads lined up at the top of the aviary basking in the sun.
Thanks so much to Mr. Cecere and everyone involved with the American Eagle Foundation for their time, experience, and encouragement.
Harrison Bay State Park we have some exciting news to tell you about as well. Last week the rangers at the park were able to add three injured birds to the Harrison Bay Raptor Center. These birds are injured or disabled and will remain at the Center where they will be cared for and will provide educational and viewing opportunities for park and community guests. This is a great project initiated by Park Ranger Matt Vawter and funded by The Friends of Harrison Bay State Park.
We have a Red Tailed Hawk named "Scarlett" who doesn't miss a single movement outside of her enclosure. Yes, eyes like a hawk.
The resident "camera hound" is "Happy" a Turkey Vulture who can not sit still and wants all the attention. Shaking of a set of keys will get him hopping up and down and looking straight at you.
We encourage guests to stop by and see the raptors. For those interested in more information or how you can help support the project click here Harrison Bay Raptor Center. Donations are readily accepted as feeding these birds will be an expensive venture.
