Critter Cam 1

You are watching  one of the Center's non-releasable education birds. You may be watching Buddy, our nine-year-old Bald Eagle. Buddy came to the Center in 2008 with avian pox.

Or ... you are watching Maggie, the one-eyed Peregrine Falcon! Wondering how Maggie got her name?  Read our archived "spotlight" on Maggie. Or ... you are watching Buttercup, the Center's education Black Vulture.  Buttercup is a human-imprinted bird.

Hospital Cam occurs monthly on this Critter Cam; check out our events calendar to see when the next one is scheduled!
