Amazing birds, super informative program. Worth the time taken. If there is any reason to drop pesticides and lobby your reps to save habitat, these magnificent birds are reason enough.

Great show of the birds. Many birds in upclose enclosures you can see like owls, eagles, hawks and so forth. So close you can take a good picture.
