If you’re venturing through Southern Alberta, you owe it to yourself to stop into the Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation in Coaldale.
For a low-cost, you get to enter the facility and see a variety of birds of prey in various states of rescue and recovery. You’ll learn about what they do, along with the different types of birds they rescue and take in a flight demonstration by their resident Bald Eagle.
I didn’t know this, but apparently the Bald Eagle isn’t really much of a flier. They’d rather sit and wait for some prey than to put forth effort into flying. Here he is cooling off in the “shower” after the flight demonstration.
Go check out Alberta Birds of Prey Foundation on your next trip through Alberta!
