The second part of the tour was in the preparation area. A volunteer talked about food preparation, medical care, and how the eagles are transported. The final portion of the tour was in one of the class rooms. In here they had volunteers answering questions, media from the normal daily lectures and Harriet to pose for pictures.
Harriet is the oldest of there educational birds, she is 26 years old. Harriet is also the calmest of the educational birds which is why she is the one that does most of the important events.Harriet has appeared at VA hospitals, has here face on a special license plate, has appeared on the Steven Colbert Report and has been given her military wings.Harriet is the shorter one in the picture. The geeky guy next to her is me. Doesn't the new shirt look nice? It's too bad that Michelle has already told me that it belongs to her. Well at least I get to keep the hat. After we left the center we decided to check out the eco tent. It was filled with exhibits from The International Wolf Center, the Upper Mississippi River Wildlife and Fish Refuge, Michael Pappas with lots of baby turtles, The Raptor Center, and others. The Raptor Center brought a bald eagle and a peregrine falcon to the event.
