Birds of Prey

 We have a Birds of Prey reserve in our town.  When Grandma and Grandpa were here for Peach's baptism they came a few days early and asked us to plan some activities.  One morning we spent a couple hours at the reserve.  They had a couple of little talks, you could visit the California condors, some other birds of prey, and play with some displays they had.  The kids and I had recently watched a video on how the California Condor is being brought back at the Grand Canyon and how lead bullets were the main cause of there demise.  Condors are some seriously ugly birds but I felt a little sad standing there looking at them thinking about how Zinke just this year is re-allowing lead bullets in the national parks.  Seems like a really stupid rule to revoke.  You could have satisfy hunters and kept the birds safe by asking them to use other bullets but whatever I've given up thinking this cabinet has to make sense.  Anyway the kids had fun.  They enjoyed seeing all the cool birds, the feathers, and pretending to be birds of prey themselves. 
This little hawk is known as a chicken hawk.  Ironically it is too small to lift a chicken or a rabbit and mostly eats grasshoppers.  
 Hanging out with Grandma and Grandpa in front of the Condors.  

 It is so nice to have extra hands to hold the baby.
 Even Grandpa got in on the fun.
