We recently had the opportunity to spend 3 nights staying at Kangaroo Island – off the southern coast of Australia – one of the highlights of the visit was going to the Raptor Domain Bird Show.
They had a variety of Birds of Prey from small Falcons up to the very large Wedge Tail Eagle.
One of my favourites was the White Bellied Sea Eagle – it was taken out of its nest as a baby and raised in a shed – when it was rescued it did not know how to fly properly or eat fish. They have put a lot of work into correcting this – but sadly will never be able to be released into the wild.
Abbey the Barking Owl was also a favourite
The Star of the show was the Wedge Tail Eagle
A more complete collection of the bird photos can be found on my facebook page here
We had a great time on the island – and I will post more photos in the future .
If you want to see more of the wonderful nature of Kangaroo Island there is nice facebook page here that we found useful when planning our trip there.
Thanks for looking.
