Arbor Day at the Arboretum

Standard
Red tailed hawk

Today was Arbor Day and we went to an Arbor Day celebration at our local Arboretum.  A lot of great exhibits surrounded us. The Kentucky Children’s Garden is always wonderful, but one in particular stood out to me.  I guess maybe it’s my love for birds and all critters.  One of the exhibits was Critters in the Classroom in association with Raptor Rehabilitation of Kentucky.  If you happen to know of a raptor in need of rescue please call the rescue line at:  (502) 491-1939.  The Red tailed hawk photographed above is something we see in our neighborhood quite frequently soaring slowly over the tall trees in our backyard.  Getting to see one up close was a real treat.

Barred Owl

The Barred Owl was the other bird we saw up close today and it did not disappoint.  The owl was beautiful and to see its head turn around when we called his name delighted my daughter, Lucy.  A truly amazing animal.

I know today was Arbor Day and I didn’t discuss trees at all, but I didn’t have room to plant a tree at home and we didn’t even look.  What can I say?  The birds stole the show.

I like pinning on Pinterest, keeping track of my high school friends, college friends and family on Facebook and don’t tell anyone, but I sometimes re-shelve books at the library because I enjoy it.
