Bird of Prey Exhibit
ABQ BioPark Zoo / Albuquerque, NM
Sited within a grove of cottonwood trees, the south facing, curved Bird of Prey Exhibit is home to a pair of bald eagles, several species of hawks, and vultures. Each of the exhibit spaces provides for the birds’ particular needs for flying space, perch heights, breeding/nesting sites and feeding areas. Prior to moving into this exhibit, the eagles, who have mated for life, had never produced an egg. The pair produced an egg the very first year in their new enclosure. The ABQ BioPark Zoo was recognized by the TVA for the number of young eagles this pair has produced and that the zoo has released into the wild.
