Meet the Birds at Our Aviary

The Aviary at Deep Creek Lake State Park  houses 9 birds of prey used for the Scales and Tales program.  These birds have been injured/hand raised, and cannot survive in the wild.  Scales and Tales is a state wide environmental education program that encourages an appreciation for the splendor and diversity of Maryland’s wildlife, promotes an understanding of the relationship between man, wildlife, and the habitat they share, and encourages people to visit state forests and parks to further explore that relationship.
