World Center for Birds of Prey

This facility is the world headquarters for the peregrine fund in Boise, Idaho. Their primary mission is to preserve endangered raptor species through captive breeding, but they have impressive education programs that make it an amazing place to visit. If you’re like we were and aren’t entirely clear about what a raptor is and what kinds of raptors there are, they’ll clear that right up. But the real education is seeing the birds. It’s hard to overstate how majestic and regal they are. Ann kept saying she felt the urge to kneel before them. Captivity is never an inspiring factor, and these are all birds that wouldn’t survive in the wild, but seeing them up close is just irresistibly awe inspiring. You can read an overview of all the birds or click the pictures for some more information about each. Here they are:
