Think you have seen it all, can say been there, done that?

Today I was able to participate in a field trip to the eagle hatchery at City Park. If you haven't been in a while it has changed. I figured I had seen it so was just going along. It was great that the tour guides where working on their spiel with us and fine tuning with us for the coming tour season.

As we rounded the raceways what a nice surprise to discover a bird show with a wonderful group of feathered creatures. The presenter was outstanding, she was comfortable around the birds and with public speaking. She was patient with the students and their questions. It was really amazing to see her and the birds, hear their stories and understand why they were there for care and protection. Gone was the gift store and in its place was a wonderful experience with an outstanding bird handler with the birds she clearly cares deeply about.

So thank you for reminding me that having been there done that is not always true and if you haven't been there lately, go check it out. It is hard to say who stole the show, the flock or their keeper.
