This guy here- what can I say? I have the best husband ever! He has supported my dream for Raptor Ridge since it was just a spark in my head. He helps design and build whatever I need for the birds- travel kennels, perches, mews, running plumbing and electrical so I don’t have to work in the dark and drag hoses. He generally sits in the back and doesn’t say much but when he shares pictures with his friends, I know he is proud of the work we do.

As we continue Thanksgiving Weekend, I want to take a moment to say “Thank you” to Lauren and her small friend d’Artagnan. Lauren is now a busy momma to Baby Jameson but still enjoys educating our future generation on the importance of our beautiful raptors.

I am so grateful for the folks that help me share “my purpose”. Just a few years ago, Heidi never knew she would be teaching people about our beautiful birds but look at her now- she is a rock-star! I think Heidi and Alley make a great pair!

Although Emily claims barred owls are her favorite, Griffin has decided he wants to be BFF’s! I love to see Emily sharing our birds with the public, especially with the kids. Her passion for raptors is contagious. You can’t help but fall in love with them, even the often feared and misunderstood black vulture!

In this season of Thanksgiving, I want to highlight the team that makes up Raptor Ridge, starting with Allison Anderson and Sassy. Even with her job as a first responder and an active little boy at home, she loves to spend time educating folks about our amazing raptors. Thank you Allison!

Had a great day sharing the love with Allyson Andrews Andrews and Wildly Blessed at The Crossings at Eastchase. The residents got to love on MayMay the alpaca, Gregory the leopars gecko, Bae the baby pig and Henry the hedgehog. They also got to see Acuity the barred owl and d’Artagnan the screech owl.

So now it will not only be dark when I leave in the morning but also when I get home in the afternoon. Griffin and Grizzly are not fans of eating in the dark.

What a beautiful day for Owl-o-ween at Chewacla State Park-Alabama! Got there a little early so we could explore the park a little bit. Big “thank-you” to Lauren Quattlebaum for helping out and to Olivia Sciandra for promoting the program. The Nature Center is a wonderful asset to the park where guests can see some our elusive native wildlife.

Doing what we love and loving what we do! “She and Me” Campout at Kamp Kiwanis. We enjoyed sharing our birds with these girls and their moms. The fall colors are really starting to show out in our area and the weather was perfect! Thanks to Girl Scouts of Southern Alabama for allowing us to be a part of your weekend! And Emily and I got our first Girl Scout patches! We love them!

We love this time of year- the fall colors, the cooler temps and all of the fall festivals. Today we had the opportunity to join Dylan and his reptile friends at Wind Creek State Park-Alabama for their fall festival. Alley, Acuity and d’Artagnan helped teach the guests about owls and their importance to the environment. We talked about things we can do to help our wildlife friends like properly disposing of our trash.

Dylan shared his tree frog, a box turtle and a Honduran milk snake.

This is a very interesting article about how well different animals see compared to humans. When we do programs, we talk about how well raptors see and how they see in the ultraviolet spectrum. https://www.lasikbyoclivision.com/90-animals-ranked-by-eyesight/?utm_source=join1440&utm_medium=email&utm_placement=newsletter&fbclid=IwAR0qsFXqNFoTvKhhu3OGJ_AeClk5EPWHhJAfHd0HbVB6ZGPHGoRBKQZLr6Y
