After parking the Jeep we started walking toward the Bird Prey building when a male volunteer came up to us and told us to hurry and follow him to another building without paying. There was a presentation of live birds in another building. They were presenting a Peregrine Falcon and a Western Screech owl.

|Not a great shot, but this is Bateleur Eagle|
Its habitat is open woodlands and tree savannas in Africa
|Beautiful bronze sculpture|
We went to Morrison-Knudsen Nature Center for a walk among the wildlife habitat. We spotted a deer eating bird seeds off a feeder. Saw few ducks in the pond. There were few underwater viewing areas to see trouts. Inside the gift shop has a nice display of wildlife mounts.
|This is not a stuffed owl. It is live!|
|Mountain Ash Berries|
|This deer was caught feeding on bird seeds|
|This statue was built by sculptor Gotzun Borglum.|
Gotzun was the one who created Mount Rushmore

We were starting to get hungry by the time we headed back to Elaine's place. Sheila recommended a good pizza place called Flying Pie Pizzeria on State Street. We went by the state capitol on way out.

Of course, we all could not finish our pizza and had them boxed to go. We enjoyed our day and there are more places to visit, but we will save them for next time we come back to Boise. Thank you, Sheila, for being a great guide and we enjoyed spending time with you. See you in Washington ;-)
We spent the night getting things put away, discussing trip routes from Boise to Nevada.
