Blue Mountain Wildlife had their open house this weekend. Visit their site to learn about their wonderful operation:

One of the falconers with a red-tailed hawk

It takes special federal permits to have a raptor.

Keeping them hooded keeps them calm.

One of the two golden eagles.

They had some fun musicians playing great old time tunes.

There was a great turnout including two separate photo clubs.

A falconry demonstration.

Educating the crowd about raptors.

An American Kestral

A Bald Eagle.

A red-tailed hawk.

After the golden eagle grabbed the bait (chew toy).

Some of the housing for injured birds.

A great horned owl, barn owl, red-tailed hawk, bald eagle, and two types of falcons as part of the educational display.

I left the open house and caught a little of the ending days sunlight. I found this bird in the Umatilla Forest, 40 minutes out of Pendleton.

One of my favorite places in the Umatilla National Forest.
