Unlike the Verlociraptors of the movie "Jurassic Park" modern day raptors have feathers as well as scales and are known for their talons!
Easily recognized birds of prey are a fascinating group of predators that few people fully understand.
The lives of these "aerial hunters" will be the topic of natural history, biology, adaptations, habitats, poaching, falconry and the management of these animals in the wild and how the laws and regulations protect them.
Live owls, hawks, falcons and vultures await you up-close and personal.
Flight demonstrations are free and only if safe for the birds.
