owls are awesome

Three years ago, I did a story on the incomparable Dawn Keller and her and her husband Phil Hampel’s baby- Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation. (CLICK HERE for more info on their organization.)

Flint Creek, which rehabilitates and releases area wildlife, has three locations- Barrington, Chicago’s Northerly Island and Itasca.

This afternoon, the Itasca location at Spring Brook Nature Center held an open house.

I dragged my four kids out there today to meet Dawn, Phil and some of the unreleasable birds they keep for educational purposes.

They loved it!

For me, I loved seeing their collection of owls.
