Are you busy the second week of September?

Do you live in the North East? If you are one of those who is fascinated by raptors but have very little first hand experience, there is a place for you to be.

Wildlife rehabilitators and experts from across the Northeast will be showcasing a wide variety of these extraordinary birds of prey at the largest raptor celebration in New England. Eagles, falcons, owls, vultures, and hawks will be featured in live flight demonstrations and educational programs for bird enthusiasts of all ages.

Join master falconer Laurie Schumacher from Hamilton, New York, for Talons! A Bird of Prey Experience on September 12 and 13 – Gyr Falcons, European Eagle Owls and American Kestrels are just a few of the raptors featured. Breath-taking free flight demonstrations highlight this program focusing on falconry, raptor biology, and conservation.
