|The kids hanging out with a statue of Wabasha in front of the National Eagle Center|
We were not disappointed. During the day they have a special talk by one of the keepers which allows a limited audience to see an eagle being fed. We were a shade late to attend, and Bubby our "want to learn it and see it all kid" was pretty disappointed. There was so much else to do though, that the disappointment was soon forgotten.
We were able to get up close and personal with these guys anyway in the viewing arena. They were pretty talkative at times too because of a recent addition to the bunch. All the eagles living at the center are rescue animals.
The center was great for learning by all ages. Everywhere you looked were interactive and colorful displays. Our favorites were the eagle nest...
We also enjoyed matching the animals on this board that had pelts, antlers and feathers of local wildlife.
This little side trip really was a nice end to what was one of our favorite trips - but don't make me say which ones are my favorite, because really most are in their own way ;)
