Bird of Prey Presentation

The Bird of Prey presentation, sponsored jointly by HALT and the Hopkinton Public Library, was a great success.  Kathleen Regan, Teacher Naturalist from Mass Audubon, spoke to a capacity crowd of 75, telling us about birds of prey native to Massachusetts.  She brought out three of them: a peregrine falcon, a broad-winged hawk, and a great horned owl, walking them around the room for everyone to see.  These beautiful birds were raised in captivity because they were brought to Mass Audubon with issues that prevented them from surviving in the wild, giving us a chance to see birds up close that we normally just see high in the sky or (in the case of owls) hear at night.  Everyone learned a lot.
