A spotted owl, a turkey vulture, a kestral, and this raven were some of the birds on display at the Leach Botanical Garden last night hosted by the Audubon. These birds are lucky enough to have been rescued by bird lovers and now are most at home with humans and so will not return to the wild. Not to worry, these birds seem quite content with their human friends and their not so wild lifestyles.
I couldn't help but notice this mushroom cloud of bamboo near the entrance to the garden. If you haven't been here you're missing out an a lovely specimen garden that seems like it straight out of the 1930's.
