It is well worth the 18 mile drive up Highway 17 to reach this bucolic refuge for injured birds of prey. More than 500 bald eagles, falcons, hawks, vultures, kites, and owls are rehabilitated and released each year at this critical facility for southern avian health. Hike around the 152-acre habitat set amongst old rice fields, observe the statuesque birds in their private roomy habitats, and be sure to catch a flight demonstration to see falcons dive-bombing raw meat with lightning precision. The Center for Birds of Prey's massive orange-eyed Eurasian eagle owl is becoming quite the local celebrity.
