A great learning experience of the birds of prey that live and migrate through the Boise area. Most of the enclosures are a little small for such large birds, but they do get to stretch their wings and fly a little.

During certain times they bring out a variety of birds and you sit in an amphitheater while the birds do their thing. It's amazing to watch. The birds can be unpredictable at times- they are wild birds. I wouldn't bring kids under 5 as you...More

The birds were interesting to look at. We especially liked the live bird show. It is a bit small. We wish there were more birds to view. The volunteers are very knowledgeable and we learned a lot.

This was the third time this year we've visited. It is one of the places we take our friends and relatives that come to visit us. The place is very interesting and a fascinating view into the recovery of different raptors.

The last I knew it was not open on Mondays. However, other days it is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. They have tours and live bird showings scheduled as well as providing the freedom to look around on your own.
