Feathered Friends at Monterey Bay Aquarium
- When: Sunday, November 23, 2008, time TBA
- Where: Monterey Bay Aquarium, Monterey
- Cost: Not available
- Age limit: Not available
Get up close to rare and endangered birds in this forum in which caretakers describe their work while showcasing the feathered friends. The avian stars include hotshot hunters like a great horned owl, red tailed hawk, turkey vulture, and California condor. Penguins steal the limelight when they arrive via elevator and waddle down a red carpet to the Kelp Forest exhibit. Meet Makana, a Laysan albatross, a regal creature rarely seen at aquariums or zoos, then get a rare opportunity to feed shoreline birds their daily ration of mealworms (yum). With Thanksgiving approaching, remember that not all foul are for feasting. [SK]
