Here are a few photos from a trip we made to Sunriver, Oregon, last month.
One of my favorite things to do in Sunriver is visit the Nature Center and Observatory. Truth be told, I’ve only gone to the Observatory once (although I have heard it is AWESOME at night). It’s the Nature Center that I really hold dear. The birds there are in rehabilitation, or are permanently injured and can never re-enter the wild.
I didn’t see these photos until reviewing them for this post, but this snake was totally on the attack!
If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend visiting the nature center. Admission is cheap and the birds of prey are great. They also have displays of owl pellets and all sorts of wildlife scat, great books about nature, and a mini-arboretum with native gardens, where the local birds just go crazy.
Also, here’s a bonus shot of Penelope eating a carrot. She is so crazy.
