kestrel in flight

There’s a great live bird presentation happening at the Brandwein Nature Learning Preserve on Sunday, October 20 from 1 to 4 pm.

Join Bill Streeter from the Delaware Valley Raptor Center for a program on local birds of prey. We’ll learn about how these masters of the skies live and survive. Bill’s show includes several live (rehabilitated) raptors.

Raptors are birds of prey such as eagles, hawks, falcons or owls. Their innate abilities to survive can teach us about adaptations and the critical role raptors play in our environment. As predators atop the food chain, raptor populations are sensitive to environmental changes; their fate is linked directly with human actions.
