Dear Edhat Readers,
I would like to take this special opportunity to invite you and your family or friends to come and visit us at our new site at the SB Museum of Natural History.
Our five birds - Max (Great horned owl), Ivan (Red-tailed hawk), Kisa (Peregrine falcon), Kachina (American kestrel), and Tecolita (Western screech owl), are available to view every day between 2 and 4 PM. During this time we bring them outside for outdoor time, exercise, and close-up interactions with visitors.
All of our birds can no longer survive in the wild due to conflicts with human activities.
Our new aviary is situated behind the MacVeagh House, at the end of the Museum's parking lot on the left.
There is no entry fee for visiting our aviary - as long as you park at end of the parking lot, and walk down the driveway on the left to visit us.
If you are there to visit the Museum, you can find us by walking past the Butterfly Exhibit - along the creek trail - to the Museum's Backyard.
It's a beautiful setting, and all of us, (especially the birds) love our new space. This project has been in the works for seven years.
I wish to thank the many community members that contributed in so many ways to help make this happen.
