We liked Raptor Domain Birds of Prey.

We saw the raptor demonstration but we also enjoyed the figures on the trees and on the ground.   This Echidna is not real,

but we did see a real one on an evening nocturnal wildlife hike.   This is a really big bee.

Let’s go down the path to the raptor demonstration.

The birds are trained to return to the arm of the trainer.   We like black and white birds.

He has long claws or talons, but he did not hurt people or ducks.   We like these kookaburras.

They are not birds of prey.   They are from the King Fisher Family, but we were happy to see them.   We also saw the Black Breasted Buzzard.

He loves to eat green emu eggs, but the shells are very hard.   The Black Breasted Buzzard knows to pick up a rock and break the egg.   He did enjoy his egg.   The humans missed that photo.   This is an Australian eagle.

We like seeing all these birds.   They are different than the birds we see in our yard in Colorado.   On the way out of the Raptor Domain we admired these lady bugs on the tree.

We liked our visit to the Raptor Domain Birds of Prey and we think you would like it too.
