North American Birds of Prey

Thursday August 11, 2016
6:30 PM until 7:30 PM


Birds of prey, or raptors (from the Latin for “to seize”), are hunting birds with hooked beaks and powerful grabbing feet armed with sharp talons. These birds—among them eagles, hawks, falcons and owls—also boast the best eyesight and the sharpest hearing in the animal kingdom. This presentation, with five live birds, by Wingmasters, will explain raptor predation, their place at the top of the food web, their different hunting adaptations and their status in a rapidly changing world. Come see featured species of endangered raptors and learn about why they face an uncertain future. Sign up today!

This event will be held at the Milford Town Hall banquet room. Please use the entrance on Middle Street and take the elevator to the 3rd floor.
