Thick Billed Parrot Info. Some monk parrots have been found in the area, so the other sign is needed to (hopefully) prevent more releases/escapes.

Owl Information sign. Pretty much everybird at the sanctuary includes an information sign such as these.

On the redtail hawk you can see one of the best field ID marks, the white V on the back.

The titmouse wanted to get to the feeder bad enough that it didn't mind me standing 10 feet away, and the last one is a wedge tailed eagle (sign describing it can be found earlier in this thread).
