A wonderful experience and should be on your bucket list. It is a great place to learn more about the desert, it’s inhabitants and fauna. It is a wonderful place of entertainment and education.
Below is a short video of one of our recent visits. It features several of the birds that we saw during the raptor flights along with some hummingbirds and a desert bighorn sheep.
Below is a video taken from a viewing platform of the flight of a family of Harris Hawk’s. This will give you an idea of how close the birds come to the crowd and how large the crowd is which came to enjoy the raptor flight. The website for the museum is https://desertmuseum.org and is well worth looking at.
Below are photos of some of the birds which appear in some of the raptor flights.
A Great Horned Owl.
A closeup of a Harris Hawk.
Two of the family of Harris Hawks in-flight close to the crowd. It was a wonderful experience to be able to see these birds fly so close.
A Grey Hawk taking flight during one of the raptor flight presentations.
A Ferruginous Hawk launching into the air. A very beautiful bird and I believe it is on the endangered species list.
We will be posting additional photos and information on the museum and our other experiences in the future. We hope you have enjoyed this and our previous posts and will continue to follow our travels.
