Feathered friends from Raptors Ridge Birds of Prey will return to Minter Country Garden this Saturday and Sunday.

Frankie (above), an eight-year-old Harris Hawk, stretches his wings during a visit to Minter Country Garden on Saturday.

Frankie was born in captivity, is a burn survivor, and he now lives at Raptors Ridge Birds of Prey in Maple Ridge.

Also visiting that day were Lucy, a great horned owl who was also born in captivity, and Chico, a barred owl who, at 10 days old, was found in a mud puddle.

If you missed the birds from Raptors Ridge, you can see them this weekend (Dec. 20 and 21) from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Minter Country Garden.
