Mother’s Day in Sunday, and mother’s love babies! Baby Owls that is. The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey is hosting their annual Baby Owl Shower this Saturday, May 7th. As Spring arrives, so do many baby birds, and that means the center becomes increasingly busy with young raptors who are either abandoned or displaced from their families. The Center works very hard to prepare the birds for release back into the wild. Some babies will be placed in foster nests, some are returned to their families and still others are raised and prepared for life in the wild at the Center. To help curb the cost, they host this “free” Baby Owl Shower. In lieu of admission the Center asks that you make an in-kind donation or bring an item from their wishlist. All Funds raised will help offset the cost during baby bird season. Funds will be used to buy food, medications, medical care and other essential supplies. To see a list of items they need click here. There will be non-releasable baby raptors (birds of prey) available to view. There will also be educational activities and programs presented by participating organizations.
This is a great organization and a great cause to support. I hope you’ll make it out with your mom on Saturday to the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey to support the Baby Owl Shower!
