Thank you for viewing the Eagle Eyes on the Environment project! Eagle Eyes is a behind the scenes look into rehabilitation at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey. The Center's Magic of Flight is a 100' x 25' enclosure that is 20' tall. The Flight barn is the last step toward release back into the wild.

Time for rehabilitation varies depending on the injury. Birds can spend anywhere from just a few days to several months in the flight barn. This time is critical to their recovery, giving them the strength and endurance to return to the wild. If you have viewed the cameras and don’t see too much activity, birds spend a majority of the day “perching” since they are not in the wild searching for food. 

Write us!  If you have questions or comments on the Eagle Eyes project please let us know.  Email eaglewatch@audubon.org.  We look forward to hearing from you and please visit the site again soon.
