Critter Cam 3

You are watching Eagle Cam, featuring a large Bald Eagle family! We're currently caring for four hatch-year eaglets, 17-083617-0879, 17-1181, and 17-1354. There are two mature (non-releasable) adults in the enclosure acting as surrogates [#15-0355 and #16-0038]. 

Or, you are watching Buttercup, the Center's education Black Vulture! Buttercup is a human-imprinted vulture who cannot be released into the wild. He hatched in 2004.
