Wild Birds of Prey
June 2, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Visit Marsh Haven Nature Center during the Art All Around weekend and attend the Wild Birds of Prey program on Sunday at 1pm to witness the beauty of wildlife. View live hawks and owls and gain more appreciation for these majestic birds and the benefits they provide. This program by Renee Wahlen, director at Marsh Haven Nature Center, will introduce some of Wisconsin’s raptors through a photo presentation, mounted specimens, and LIVE birds. These are educational birds and cannot be returned to the wild due to a variety of permanent injuries. Learn about these amazing birds and their importance to our ecosystem, find out what characteristics define raptors, and discover secrets of the silent hunter – the owl. The particular live birds may vary by program, but may include a Red-tailed Hawk, American Kestrel, Great Horned Owl, Eastern Screech Owl, or Barred Owl.
