Audubon Teaches Nature: Birds of Prey, Master of the Skies
January 24, 2016, 1:00 pm–5:00 pm
Birds of prey are truly masters of the sky. They have keen eyesight, sharp talons and are adept hunters of both birds and animals, and, fortunately for us, Alabama is home to several species of year-round residents, migrants and the occasional winter rarity. During this seminar, featuring live birds from the Callaway Gardens Birds of Prey Program, you will learn their various features, adaptations and field marks to help you identify them in the field. Your kids will love this program, and be sure to bring a camera, too!
Come early to enjoy refreshments at the Alabama Wildlife Center and the birds at the feeders, then, when it is time for the program we will proceed to the AWC auditorium for the program. Note that there are two time slots for this program to accommodate everyone, but please arrive early to ensure your seat.
