A visit to Willowbrook Wildlife Clinic
My mom, Sam, Henry, Jane, and I all visited Willowbrook Wildlife Clinic in Glen Ellyn on Friday. I'd been there before, but it had been a few years. The big news was that Willowbrook had a bobcat on the premises, which caused much excitement among the visitors.
First, we strolled around inside the clinic where we viewed both living and not-so-living residents, like this coyote.
Henry was fascinated by a snake that kept going in and out of a glass bottle.
My mom and Jane—Jane was smacking my mom on the head in this photo, which is why my mom is laughing.

Making our way further through the clinic
After finishing our tour of the indoor clinic, we stroll through the outdoor exhibit.
This volunteer was sharing interesting information about this owl. The owl had a thing about Jane and locked its eyes on her for several uneasy moments.
Some pretty purple flowers on the grounds

An eagle (I think)

The much-hyped bobcat, who seemed bored and somewhat tired.
