The Avian Reconditioning Center is such a special place to be, and Saturday, November 4th was no different. On a beautiful autumn day, we had our 12th annual Fall Owl Fest. Making it so special, our Master Falconer Scott McCorkle worked with Jeep, a Bald Eagle on his first flight demonstration with so many people watching! Thank you to all our sponsors, vendors, musicians, USFW, FWC and St Johns who had so much wildlife information. Thank you to all our hard working volunteers who help make this happen. Many thanks to all who came out to learn about raptors and have fun at the same time!
The Nest Box will also be open to purchase great unique gifts for everyone on your list!
