The Ohio Bird Sanctuary

Another fall festival we attended this year was at the Ohio Bird Sanctuary located near Mansfield.  This was a fundraising event for them, as they provide sanctuary and rehabilitation for native Ohio birds.

They did a wonderful bird talk/show where we could see the birds close up.
Here are some of them.
Barn Owl
Red-tailed Hawk
Peregrine Falcon, the fastest animal on earth.
Great Horned Owl
This one was my favorite. I was fascinated by it.  So beautiful.

They also had the Columbus Zoo bring some animal ambassadors including a penguin, flamingo, armadillo, small tortoise, a small fox, and this beautiful baby snow leopard.

I'm wishing we lived closer so we could take advantage of their programs. 
It was a nice afternoon and made for a great family field trip.
