Flagstaff Arboretum-Birds of Prey

Sunday, April 26, 2009

April 25th is Arbor Day, we didn't realize it, it was free of charge to access the arboretum. Unlike the nice, warmer weather we had earlier of the week, it was windy, cloudy, and cold. I think we are still too early in the season to see the Spring colors (mostly native plants at the arboretum).

But we wer able to see the Birds of Prey on display. Because of the wind, the normal program was not held, but are resting on handlers hands.

Above we have both male and the female Eurasian Eagle Owls. The female is the larger of the two, which is common among birds of prey. They must be camera shy, since most of my shots, they seemed to look away.
