Owls, Hawks, and Eagles, OH MY!
Join us for Birds of Prey Day on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm for a raptor rendezvous!
Learn all about these extraordinary animals with special encounters, talks, and flights.
Last year’s inaugural event was a great success, and we’re excited to host an even bigger and better event this year with more experts—and more importantly—more birds!
Spend some time with Darwin, Reptiland’s great horned owl! Pose for a picture and ask our animal experts questions about this beautiful bird. Get an up-close look at two stunning goshawks and chat with master falconer Michael Kuriga about hawks and other birds of prey. Witness the impressive sight of an eagle in flight! Patrick Miller of ZooAmerica will be here showing off the impressive golden eagle! And a new addition for this year, Cheri Heimbach of Baywings Falconry will join us with 6 different birds: Harris’s hawk, aplomado falcon, peregrine falcon, eagle owl, barn owl, and a screech owl!
Zoo members: This is event is FREE for you to attend. Though not necessary, we recommend reserving tickets in advance. To do so, please call 570-538-1869. Thank you!
