Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, Maitland, FL

“Strength comes from providing those without.”

In central Florida with plenty of indoor and outdoor entertainment options, we have forgotten the unique perspective into natural beauty that lies right around the corner. The Audubon Center has provided support facility to injured or otherwise helpless birds from Ospreys, Eagles, Owls and even the maligned Turkey Buzzard. The goal of facility has been to bring this wildlife back to the point of release into the wild. Under threat of rain, the property was quite accessible and easy to navigate. For $5 donation per person, it had offered several open area cages including a staging house. In the staging house, several birds were within arm’s reach.

Having had wrist surgery over a year back, it was remarkable to see an Eagle manage without an eye. This bird was going to manage for food without it. Remarkable, it was going to be true survival versus faux conflict. In that perspective, it was a reminder how easy humans have it.

The Bird of Prey facility was easily located off I-4 and Lee Road between Maitland, FL and historic Eatonville just off Wymore and Kennedy.
