Baby season is here!

Baby season has begun at the raptor center. This time of year it is Great Horned owls which will soon be followed by Barred and Screech owls. The hawks and falcons will show up in April/May with the Mississippi Kites in June. If you find baby birds on the ground the best thing to do is leave them alone. If they look injured give us a call at 972-442-7607.
