Meet Our Birds!

Here at Shaver’s Creek we have 21 birds of prey in our raptor center. All of them have sustained some kind of injury that would prevent them from being able to survive in the wild with the exception of our American Kestrel, who was raised illegally as a pet before coming to us. The Shaver’s Creek’s raptor center is open to the public for viewing every day from 10:00am-5:00pm, March through mid-December. We have self-guided packets available that tell you the natural history and biography of each raptor. Come enjoy seeing these majestic birds up close and personal!
