|A visit to the Bailey Memorial Flight Pen
Hello to everyone. Casey here, at long last with the Continuing Adventures of Casey and Kiddo. I was blocked off BC for two whole days but things seem to be back to normal, well as normal as life can be living with a human. hehehe. Thank you for a stopping by with your votes while I was sqauwk-atieled both Friday and Saturday.
Casey watches with eyes wide-open as the huge Coach Duty Wildlife Center and the Bailey Memorial Flight come into view. George the Tiger, stops for a brief second, then trots in long, effortless strides towards the outdoor flight where Baldwin the Eagle is perched waiting.
"Kiddo, this is totally amazing. Look at the natural habitat and pools of water for the Raptors to drink from." Turning this way then that taking it all in. "Baldwin, this is amazing"
"Come on, I'll give you three a tour, after all I stayed here myself for a spell"
Happy to be heading into a new Adventure, Kiddo, George and Casey willingly agreed. Baldwin, told them all about Bailey, a Blue Crowned Conure; their friend Chyna's frother, whose sudden passing to the Rainbow Bridge had touched the hearts of so many BC birdies, that King Willie, during his September, 2011 Bird of the Month Reign, had at the suggestion of his fister Falco, begun construction of the Raptor Flight pen."
"Kiddo, Casey, let's go check in on some of the Raptor inhabitants" Baldwin effortlessly flies in the door as George holds it open with his massive paw.
"You're going to enjoy this Casey. There are so many things to see and learn here." Kiddo smiles as the three adventurers follow Baldwin into the Flight Pen. Casey is shocked at how big, and roomy it is. The natural trees and landscape is truly beautiful. The flight has several angled walls covered by vines to encourage the large birds to use their wings to investigate.
" The walls were added to give the visitors a reason to stretch their wings in flight. This way they can't just see from one end to the other. They have to fly there to see what's happening." George stops briefly while Casey and Kiddo take in the scene, then walks softly on following Baldwin.
Casey stops to talk to a red-Tailed Hawk.
"Hello Mr Hawk. How did you come to be here?" The Hawk pins his wise looking eyes onto Casey. " I was flying through a field searching for supper when I hit a power-line and broke my wing. A nice man picked me up and brought me here to get better. One day I will be released back into the wild." One by one Casey, Kiddo and George met the resident Raptors. "This is very impressive. King Willie has done a wonderful thing building this Bailey Memorial Flight Pen."
Kiddo agrees, a the three explorers thank Baldwin before moving onto the Coach Duty Wildlife Center............
see you tomorrow
with love and votes
