Binder Park Zoo - Battle Creek, MI

Bald Eagle ID Graphic

Next Image Title

Artist Name

Binder Park Zoo's ID signs were originally made in anodized metal and all art is B&W line; the intent of the images is to show an aspect of the exhibit animal's behavior or physiology that isn't immediately apparent to the visitor: in this case, the "hooding" behavior of raptors. They shield their captured prey from other raptors who might be soaring overhead, and tempted to try to steal the food. This art was created in scratchboard.
