Sometimes, This Job is for the Birds

February 07, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

So, for the first time in weeks I was able to go outside and enjoy sunny weather by my lonesome.  Given the couple of choices I had been considering, including Tiger World, The Carolina Raptor Center, one of the local parks, I decided that I would go to Tiger World.  Then I double checked admission online, and found out it was closed on Wednesdays.   At least I found that out before I drove down there.  That being the case I decided to go to the Carolina Raptor Center instead.

I’m definitely glad I made the trip.  I got to meet quite a variety of birds including a couple of camera shy ravens, a magpie that kept telling me to “C’mere,” a couple of different owls, osprey, and a number of hawks.  Seriously folks, if you’re ever looking for something to for a couple of hours, going to see the birds is well worth the trip.

My only complaint, and it’s a half-hearted one at best, is that I didn’t get to see the eagles.  Apparently the eagles had hatchlings and are extremely noise sensitive so that aviary was closed off.  You can however watch them live on webcam in the gift shop/center.  I was told you could watch it online as well, but I can’t seem to find the link currently.

I’ll be posting a few pics of the birds in the next day or so, but unfortunately I’m not feeling well currently, so it’s going to be a short blog update this week.  Same reason it’s so late, for which I apologize.Caro
