With our homeschool group we took a fieldtrip to the Eagle Valley Raptor Center in Garden Plain in April. The grounds are beautiful and Jeff the owner is very knowledgeable about his birds. The kids found it so interesting. Not everybody got a chance to interact with the birds, but luckily enough we were chosen to be the only ones to say HI to one of the eagle's by opening our mouths very wide, and the only ones to get pictures taken with the eagle. It was a great experience, but I felt so bad that not all of the families got to do it. There were more birds to take pictures of, but my batteries ran out of juice.
