The Nest is Best!
It is the time of year for baby birds! Most babies are just fine, even if you find them on the ground. Much of the time they are learning to fly – and just like humans learning to ride a bike – they fall down a lot. They need to be left alone because their parents are nearby to help them. But if you see possible injuries or a threat (cat or dog), then putting them back in their nest is the best thing to do. Click here to to our FAQ page for information on what to do if you find baby birds. We also have contacts if you need help. The picture above is Great Horned Owls whose nest was blown down by a storm. BPRC came out, built a new nest in the tree and they successfully fledged!
Annual Raptor Photo Day coming in May
Bird of Prey Photo Day on May 21
Join us Saturday, May 21st from 7:30am to 11am at BPRC. The education ambassadors of BPRC will be out in natural settings for you to photograph. This event is held once a year and is a rare ‘up-close and personal’ setting. We start early to get the best light and before it gets too hot for birds and guests. It is $20 a person and you must pre-register on our donation page. Sign up and type ‘Registration for BOP Photo Day’ at the bottom. This must be in the comment section so we can check you in the day of the event. Please let your photography clubs, school groups and anyone who loves taking pictures of raptors know about this day.
