birds of prey


The Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre near Midland, Ontario, has a birds of prey show every Sunday at 1:00 PM, at which you will likely see a barn owl, great horned owl, red tailed hawk, Harris hawk, snowy owl, and a turkey vulture.  the bird man, Matt, flies the birds over the crowd. Today the show was indoors due to iffy weather. Flying took place, I know because the turkey vulture knocked me lightly on the head with his wing.  The highlight of a superb and educational show is when the very tame Harris hawk is flown to and from the gloved arms of members of the audience. Today the youngest brave soul was about 7 years of age.
