Eagles are unpredictable creatures, which is why you should never approach them in the wild or depend on them to babysit your pet goldfish. Have a brush with the animal kingdom with this Groupon.

Members of Tracy Aviary's Adopt-A-Bird program contribute to the care and preservation of the aviary's feathered population. The roster of winged friends up for adoption includes a bald eagle, Andy the Andean condor, Storm the red-tailed hawk, Barney the great horned owl, and baby macaws named Dali and Da Vinci. At the $25 level, members receive an adoption certificate and fact sheet for their chosen bird, as well as an e-newsletter subscription. The $50 level also includes a computer wallpaper and 5"x7" photograph of their bird, and $100-level members receive the additional benefits of two guest passes and an opportunity to meet their bird's keeper.
Giving electronic gifts like these helps save trees and protect birds' habitats.
Shafts of sunlight pierce Tracy Aviary’s dense conifer forest, sending great grey owls into hiding until nightfall, when they emerge to hunt silently above the treetops. The Owl Forest is just one of five diverse ecosystems that dot the aviary’s eight acres. Nearby, at the South American Pavilion, aviary keepers tend to keel-billed toucans as their colorful beaks break through the cereal boxes in which they incubate. And on the Kennecott Wetland, visitors can espy long-billed curlews and American coots roosting in the tall grass.
In addition to providing a diverse habitat in which native and endangered species can thrive, Tracy Aviary’s curators strive to educate visitors about threats to avian species and to encourage stewardship. To that end, the aviary frequently hosts bird encounters, small group talks with avian keepers, and even the opportunity to feed various species.
