Nebraska birds of prey on display at Fontenelle Forest

Organizers say these birds are important in helping control the rodent population in the state.

Do you know anything about the birds of prey from the state of Nebraska?

Fontenelle Forest in Bellevue showed some off Sunday.

The Nebraska birds of prey were on full display.

People were able to stop by and look at these amazing birds while learning more about them.

Organizers say these birds are important in helping control the rodent population in the state.

Volunteer educator Carri Honz said, "Having birds like this here in the state not only for their beauty aesthetically but for the importance of what they do to help control those populations you just can't beat that, you really can't."

Fun fact: the horned owl can live up to 20 years in the wild. Fontenelle Forest says, in captivity, they can live well into their 60's.
