Some of the noted birds we visited were the great horned owls, European eagle owl, the laughing kookburra's, a mix of immature and mature bald eagles, a harris hawk, red-trailed hawk, ferruginous hawks, a falcon, a spectacled owl, a snowy owl, western screech owl, and barn owls.
The birds at the center are mostly captive bred, hatched at the center, or came to the center as a result of an accident in the wild. When it came time for the demonstration flight of a few birds, the experience was amazing. One big trouble was just being able to photograph the birds from where we were sitting, especially with all of the kids in the way.

This little guy was so fast, I was lucky to get any shots of him.

Overall, we were very impressed with the visit and would highly recommend going to Duncan if you are in the area. The birds are very impressive and can be viewed up close. The entry fee is quite reasonable too. The birds on this day were fairly hot so they were not able to fly as high or fast as a result.
