   Baby Bird Season is Here!

   If you find a baby bird, PLEASE take a few minutes to read "Baby Birds 101" above, before calling or coming to the Wildlife Center.  The article is at the top of this page on the left. Please rescue, when necessary and don't kidnap healthy youngsters!

Our (wild Barn Owls) owl cam is streaming live now on - to see it, put SouthPlains Wildlife Center in the search bar or the link:
If you "subscribe" it should come up whenever you pull up YouTube or click on the icon on a phone or iPad.
The owls are nesting in the cupola in our barn, where they nested since 1988 - and then returned after our barn renovation was complete several years ago!

We don't feed the owls...they come and go at night/early morning to hunt. 

Kudos to Gail Barnes who wanted this owl cam for two years, and now it's up and running! Enjoy!!

     Thank you to the Ruth Wright Endowment for Animals, a component of the Community Foundation of West Texas, for a recent grant of $5,000 to help with wildlife care. 

We thank them for their past and present gift and for their generous support of our efforts for wildlife.

          SPWRC is now in it's 30th year!
