The Wildlife Conservation Society’s Bronx Zoo is debuting a brand new educational Birds of Prey flying show, September 12, 13, 19, 20, 26 and 27.
Eagles, hawks, falcons, and vultures will be a part of the presentation during this special three-weekend event in the Bronx Zoo’s Astor Court.
Following the show, there will be an up-close viewing of these raptors of the wild. Presenters will be on hand to chat with visitors about their favorite fliers, their habitats, feeding, migration, and their role in the ecosystem.
Also, as part of the experience, visitors will be able to:
• Create environmentally safe crafts such as recycled bird feeders to take home and help the birds in their own backyards.
• See the world from a bird’s-eye-view by trying out different types of beak-like tools, playing the migration game, and building their own nests.
• Attend a Wildlife Theater performance – The Great Migration Adventure.
• And a variety of other educational activities.
This special bird show is being presented by the Hawk Creek Wildlife Center.
The Bronx Zoo is located off the Bronx River Parkway at Exit 6. For more info call (718) 367-1010.
