Throughout the week there was a special presentation every evening for the kids.
Monday was Birds of Prey. I love birds and it was wonderful seeing these native species up close. The birds were all rescue animals, sadly unable to be released back into wild due to injuries.
Red Tailed Hawk
American Kestrel Falcon
Love the colour of his feathers
Small owl... Screech Owl
He was molting so looked a bit scruffy
Great Horned Owl
Getting close... enough
Tuesday we went crayfishing during the day
and the evening event...
...and then there were the snakes...
They were all brought out after the show
for any of the kids to hold and touch
Yes, My son & I
had the big boa around our shoulders...
sorry no photo though
Maybe they just wanted a cuddle ;)
Wednesday was Mad Science show.
I missed it... had a date with a hot shower.
Thursday night was a fun magic show.
I loved the bird puppet.
He was quite funny and had the kids engaged and laughing through the whole show.
I loved at the end how he told the kids not to tell anyone his real name
(Ricky Magic dot ca)
shhhh... I won't tell either
but I highly recommend him if you're looking for some
great magic and comedy.
Speaking of laughter.... there was plenty of that during the week.
It was a Scouting camp...
not that any shenanigans ever go on at those...
but that's another story...
