  • February Vacation Program!
    Wingmasters: New England Birds of Prey
    Friday, February 23rd @ 11:00 in the Community Room

    Birds of prey are also known as raptors, and they are hunting birds characterized by hooked beaks and powerful grabbing feet armed with sharp talons. Raptors can also boast the best eyesight and the sharpes t hearing in theanimal kingdom. Raptors include hawks, falcons and owls, and this
    presentation, which incorporates 5 live birds of prey, gives an overview of these different categories. The program is designed to explain predation, the birds' place at the top of the food web, their different hunting adaptations and their status in a rapidly changing world. Because many birds of prey are declining in number, this presentation also features one or more of the endangered raptors that WINGMASTERS cares for, and explains why these species face an uncertain future. This is a free program, open to participants ages 7 and up.
