RAPTORS

Residents were treated in Congress Hall on Sunday to birds of prey, Raptor Show. This wonderful event is highly educational and allows residents to see up close these incredible birds. There were falcons, owls and eagles to name a few. Residents were able to watch them do a short flight in the room to set post. Many of these creatures are common to our region but to be able to see them feet away vs sitting off in the distance, is simply amazing.
The handlers discussed the birds favorite prey, eye sight abilities, speeds of flight, different purposes of feather lengths and their typical habitats. Thank you to The Wildlife Institute of Eastern NY, specifically Trish & Bernie who put on the presentation for the residents.
