On a recent visit to Florida, I went to the Audobon Birds of Prey Center in Maitland, Florida. At the Birds of Prey Center, they work to rehabilitate injured birds with the goal of releasing them to the wild. Birds that cannot be rehabilitated remain at the Birds of Prey Center. Among the birds that I saw there were osprey, American bald eagle, peregrine falcons, barn owl and hawks. I was disappointed because we got there shortly before closing time. I was thinking that we would not have a lot of time to see many of the birds. Instead, I got to see the workers move many of the birds from their daytime cages to the cages where they stay at night. The employees kindly spent a long time talking about the birds. They told us their breeds, names, injuries, how they were found, and how long each bird had been at the Center.
