Critter Cam 1

You are watching Maggie, the Center's education Peregrine Falcon!  This falcon came in as a fledgling from downtown Richmond in June 2014.  Wondering how Maggie got her name?  Read our archived "spotlight" on Maggie from December 12. 

Or ... you are watching Buttercup, the Center's education Black Vulture. 

Or, you are watching Athena, one of the Center's education Barred Owls!  Athena has limited eyesight, possibly due to West Nile Virus.
