No toilet paper games at this baby shower. The Audubon Center for Birds of Prey is hosting its annual Baby Owl Shower to raise funds for their clinic, which cares for orphaned raptors (birds of prey) that have been displaced from their nests. The center uses the funds to buy food, medications and other supplies for the baby birds. Just the food category encompasses "287 pounds of fish, 148 quail, 595 chicks, 679 mice, 93 rats, 5,000 crickets and 4,000 mealworms," according to the center's website. You can make a donation or pick up a gift from the Center's wishlist. And unlike a baby shower where you don't see the little person you're buying gifts for, this baby shower lets you see cute, non-releasable baby birds.

10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, May 7 | Audubon Center for Birds of Prey, 1101 Audubon Way, Maitland | 407-644-0190 | donations accepted
