World Bird Sanctuary

On January 19, the World Bird Sanctuary from St. Louis came to town with several amazing birds of prey. The people from the sanctuary gave a fantastic presentation highlighting these birds at the Bald Eagle Watch put on by the Dubuque Audubon Society. They had a Harris Hawk, a Swainson's Hawk, an American Kestrel, a Barn Owl, an Eurasian Eagle Owl, a Screech Owl, a Vulture and a Bald Eagle. Here are some pictures and video from the event:
