Wingmasters presents: North American Birds of Prey

Friday, April 19th           11:00 am – 12:00 pm

 Grades K and up             Program is full

WINGMASTERS is a partnership of two people dedicated to increasing public understanding and appreciation of North American birds of prey. Julie Anne Collier and Jim Parks are both licensed raptor rehabilitators based in Massachusetts. Together they care for injured birds of prey. Most of the birds they rehabilitate can be released back into the wild, but in some cases the birds are left permanently handicapped. eagleBirds of prey are also known as raptors.  Raptors include eagles, hawks, falcons and owls.  The  presentation which incorporates five live birds, 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 we care for, and explains why these species face an  uncertain future.
