The World Bird Sanctuary (in St. Louis), cares for many kinds of injured and threatened birds of prey. They have dozens of exhibits spread out over more than 300 acres. Some of the highlights include bald eagles, falcons, owls and vultures. Many of the birds are injured and unable to return to the wild. You'll also find more birds and reptiles inside at the Nature Center. Colorful parrots and a giant python are certainly worth a look.

One of the primary missions of the World Bird Sanctuary is to care for injured birds of prey and return them to the wild, if at all possible. This work is done at the state-of-the-art Wildlife Hospital. The hospital and its staff of veterinarians care for more than 300 ill and injured birds each year.

Thanks, wilddog, Pat, Patti, Lyndee, PG, Gene and tex! I have been on a quest to see an owl in the wild, but so far I only caught a few fleeting glimpses. I hear them a lot, though. A barred owl often sits in the tree across the street. I would like to photograph an owl one of these days.

I LOVE these little guys and never have seen one. Last year one was spotted in Texas, and people flooded there to see it, caused quite a commotion. They never get this far south, I've heard. You will notice I did not say people "flocked" to see him!! Ha, ha! Thanks, LJ, neat puzzle.

When I was a kid, it was not uncommon to see or hear an owl. I don't ever seen nor hear them anymore. Nice one Laura.

Beautiful .... Owls are so fascinating.... We camped at Watts Barr it was a bird sanctuary years ago along the Tennessee river... You really had to watch where you stepped... LOL

Beautiful bird! I've been to the Sanctuary many years ago. It was quite an education.
